  1. Hi u was wondering if sending the money on Thursday kinda late ?? I have my own gear just no ropes lol and I have experience indoor climbing but not out and I’m so hoping you guys have enough room for me and a friend

    • Hi Jessica – No, not too late. Yes, we still have room for two more. You’re welcome to use your own gear if you want.

  2. Hi Folks! This webpage says Sept. 10, but the Facebook Event says Sept. 17. Has the date changed? Or are there two events? Please let me know! Thanks.

    • Hey Linnet – Just noticed your comment now. Yes it got postponed to the 17th due to the rain that first weekend. Sorry if it messed with you – hopefully next year we have no postponements!
