You are more then welcome to park yourself as long as you wish. The last couple of times I was at the Rumney Gathering, there was a group of climbers heading to Cannon Mtn for a days climbing and then returned. Who knows ... may happen again for those who would like to climb multipitched trad.

If all goes well, I'll be at the Gunks PA Gathering myself! Have to see how this weekend goes first.

A friend of mine wants to head down to Rumney and I have a project or two that needs sending, so I'll be down either the weekend before the gathering or the weekend of. Most likely I'll be down for the gathering given that it's Thanksgiving long weekend and I don't think I'll have much in the way of work.

Maybe I'll see y'all down there... although you might not notice anyway since I'm pretty quiet and reserved.

5.8 barefoot Rumney slabs? I never make the same mistake twi... er, four times. I have my eyes on Stormtrooper (I think that's what it's called). Definitely not slab and given that I got beat down somewhere in the middle, probably not an 8.

Sounds like a good weekend. I just need to know where at Rumney, like which cliff, or whatever (I've never been, forgive me). Also, what the hostel situation is, and last but not least, how long it takes to get there from Ottawa, or Toronto or Montreal (if have info on either one, it's fine. I just need a rough estimate).

Peace

Ryan

I've driven from Ottawa and from Toronto, and Ottawa was a much shorter drive. I think from Ottawa it was eight hours, but I'm not entirely sure. It'd definitely be longer to go through Toronto if you're heading from Kingston.

As for what cliff... everyone will most likely congregate at the campground right at the crag (I believe directions and such are listed in this thread and in the Rumney section in the routes DB), and then disperse from there. I think it's $7 a night, but you don't have to pay for parking since you can walk to the climbs from camp.

Here are the directions to colleens place.

From Rumney's parking lot (and surrounding area):
Turn left on Buffalo Road
At Stinson Lake Road, turn Right
At Rt 25, turn Right (North) and go for 4.2 miles
Turn Left onto Rt 118
Follow 118 for 11.1 miles where you will start to see signs at the Stevens Road turn off.
Turn Left on Stevens Road and go for .8 miles and Colleens house will be on the left, after the Quonset Hut.

From West or form Interstate 89:
Take Exit 17 (Rt 4) and go East toward Enfield - Canaan - 16 miles
When you reach the center of Canaan, right after the only blinking yellow light, turn Left onto Rt 118.
Go 4.1 miles and the turn onto Stevens Road, which is on the Left and is a hair-pin type of turn.
Straight to Colleens house.

Here are the pictures of where the tents can be set up.

Here is the left side ...

Toward the center ...

http://www.rockclimbing.com/...p.cgi?Detailed=59667

and ...

http://www.rockclimbing.com/...p.cgi?Detailed=59665

and this is the right side where the cooking and bonfire will be ...

http://www.rockclimbing.com/...p.cgi?Detailed=59666

Hope to see everyone there. In case anyone is wondering, there is another field not shown for the over flow (if any),

reposted directions to the campsite.

kris, i don't think where we're gonna be is the same as where you're thinking of....

correct me if i'm wrong.

Ryan.. there are many different cliffs at Rumney but there will be people scattered among probably most of them so basically you can find people that are interested in the same routes or areas and go with them.. or whatever
http://www.rockclimbing.com/routes/listArea.php?AreaID=576 the route data base is pretty up to date with most of the walls
basically people either meet at where we are staying or in the parking lot and decide where to go


hostel situation looks like mostly camping in a field at Jammer's friends house. look through the thread for more info on that and pictures

The campings free at Colleens and it's only a 15 to 20 minute ride from the cliffs. I'll be there from Firday night to Monday morning and it's open to everyone that wants to climb.

edited to add ... kim, you're correct. They are two different places.

Kris ... even though there is camping across the street from the parking lot, I'd like to see us all camp in one area and get to know each other and have on hell of a good time! Join us if you want.

Looks like I was giving bad beta.

So yeah, listen to those other people on camping and it's probably closer to 6 hours to Rumney from Ottawa and 10-11 from Toronto heading south to the border by Niagara.

Alan,

Exactly when again is the gathering happening? I'm needing to verify if I'm able to go that weekend.

A shamless bump to get this back on the front page. Just a note to remind those who are camping to ensure that their bag is rated for the chilly fall mornings ... down to 30 degrees ...

Looks like there may be a small crew going there (though it was going to be independently, only just saw this thread) from Niagara Region. Two are taking the week off after Thanksgiving (Canadian), then there's my friend Kelly from Hamilton, and myself and my boyfirend who would be leaving from Buffalo/Tonawanda area.

I think that we all wanted to get some good climbing in, but it'd be cool to meet some other RC.commers. Will the cliffs be insanly busy that weekend?

We'd like to conserve gas so carpooling would be a plus, but the three of us who'd only be there for the weekend will likely fill a mid-sized sedan easily. Grant - I have to talk to Kelly J and Nathan to see if this is going to work for us, who's car we're going to take, and how much stuff we'll need to bring. I'll give you a call either on the weekend or early next week about this.

granite.. the parking lot was really busy (carwise) last year one of the days. the other weekend day wasnt as hard to find a spot.
The cliffs will vary depending on what routes you are looking to get on.. if you want to do parking lot or meadows stuff then getting there early or coming back later is your best bet. individual routes up higher it will depend and earlier will be your better bet

anyway it's hard to judge.. some weekends are packed and some are scarily empty and you wonder where people are

Don't be surprised if there are those who'll be right behind you! Cannan is also just up the road a bit and it's common for trad and sport to share the fire, have some brew and shoot the shit at these gatherings. Howl at the moon or dance till your legs fall off .. it's all a good time! Gotta keep the right spirit going!

Checking http://www.weatherunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=03266 , they are calling for ...

Friday - 72% dry
Saturday - 73% dry
Sunday - 79% dry

The weather is always a bit of an issue in New England, but don't give up yet ... just check the above link as the time get closer. I sure hope everything works out. Does anyone know the sun dance??

Well, weather permitting, Meaghan and I will arrive early on Sunday and stay over one night. Her SATs are on Saturday, and she needs to pull a 1350 to get some nice financial aid at Roger Williams University. I know I will be keeping my fingers crossed!

See everyone then.

If there is still room (and if we can bring our 9 yr old daughter) we might be for it Saturday evening onward. Still have to talk it over and figure out family logistics.

Alan, is there space for us if we can make it? Please let me know. Thank,
Tiff
