Most definitely. Hoping not to get rained out this year again. Turns out my tent wants more sand in it this year.
I'll be staying an extra two days if anyone wants to do some climbing or bouldering afterwards.
I'll buy the wine on Friday then, as long as somebody else provides me with a New Belgian beer.

I am totally looking forward to going! I'm a local, but have never attended (go figure!). Red Rock is my backyard and weekend hangout year round - fantastic place!

I'm doing a clinic on Saturday. I'm looking for a climbing partner for Sunday. I'd like to do some moderate trad climbing. 5.9-10a. I'll lead or swing leads. Any takers?

Just wondering... Is the rendezvous worth attending for more experienced climbers who don't want any clinic stuff? Does it cost money for those not doing clinics? Is it possible to enjoy Red Rock during the rendezvous without taking part (camping still available and climbs)? Just turns out i have a week off and the rendezvous is smack dab in the middle of it and it almost makes me want to go to Utah. I just don't know enough about it. Thanks in advance.

This is a birthday present to myself.
The last day of the Rendezvous will be my 21st birthday!!!
I am heading from West Virginia. I live in the rural mountains of WV (about an hour from Seneca Rocks). I am trying to find a ride to the DC area. Any Ideas?
Anyone in this area heading to DC, Baltimore, Philli to catch a plane?

I might be there the week before (13-18). What is it usually like weather wise and crowd wise during this time? I would love to go to the rendezvous but spring break and work dictates otherwise.

Hey kylekienitz - if the sun is out (and it usually is) weather will be great. Storms are unpredictable, but expect daytime 70s. No worry of crowds mid week. Weekends are somewhat crowded when weather is good (got to go off the beaten paths and there're plenty!). Need any more local insight, let me know - I've lived here 22 years...

What better place to spend a 21st birthday than Las Vegas? If you don't get your fill at the Rendezvous, I'll join you at the bars in town. Nothing better than a group of climbers who haven't showered in a few days, covered in sand, burned to a crisp by the sun, and stinking to high-hell going out on the town!

I'm gonna give the Crack Climbing clinic another try this year. Hopefully I won't get rain/hailed out again.

Then on Sunday, I'm doing Slacklining (hoping the YogaSlackers will be there again this year) and Trail Running.

How about you? What clinics are you trying?

Hoping to do some climbing and bouldering on Friday, Monday, and Tuesday also.

Still looking for a Sunday partner. I'm totally flexible, just looking to climb and have fun. I've got the rack, rope, etc.

Doesn't matter much now. Just took a bouldering fall at the gym tonite and my ankle is the size of a grapefruit. Thank you Canada for socialized healthcare and limited clinic hours, can't see a doctor or get an xray til morning unless I want to wait 4-6 hours in the emergency room.

Fucking fuck fuck, FUCK.

I guess that makes me a belay bitch for the weekend unless someone wants to go hunt down some 5.2s :p

hey folks- for those in town for the rendezvous, stop by the ASCA booth and say hi- i'll be tending the table all weekend!

also, stop by and see the LVCLC who are running a rebolting initiative in the calico hills (Magic Bus, Ultraman, and Panty Wall have all been fully updated with new hardware- with more to come soon!) as well as the folks from Joshua Tree Climbing Products, who are here with their fluffy dog Torrent!

Are you guys only replacing the bolts, or are you also.... adjusting and perhaps removing a few of them?

replacement only, although there are some routes that i'm polling the community on whether to adjust some locations for the bolts. im extremely reluctant to do so without a very unanimous (or near unanimous) voice from the community, though- im very aware of the ramifications of modifying routes and its not our place to do so unless the community and FA team wants us to and makes it VERY clear thats what they want.

obviously some routes will see some visible modification- Rebel Without a Pause is the most obvious case so far- the anchors were in TERRIBLE rock and have since been moved nearly 4' to the right into better rock (and are actually easier and more natural to clip now). rock quality still will dictate bolt location- but we do our best to replace one for one in a location as close to the original location as possible.
