Hey Ropeburn, we met at Franklin and Seneca. Topper is out west & Zap will be heading west. Both are unavailable until October. I'm in need of a partner. Let me know if you are coming to Seneca.

My children and I have climbed the Sandbox and Dihedral sections of Great Falls until we can do most of the routes blindfolded. They want to climb something else at Great Falls. Any recommendations? They're turning into badasses and want something higher (although not harder).

And don't forget the adopt a crag day. I'll be there.

Like many has already suggested, the Seclusion area is a good place to go, it's comparable to Dihedrals in height. Besides Snowflakes (5.6), Great Beginnings (5.7) is also a nice climb, starting out with some fun layback/underclings, and finish up on a corner/crack. If your kids are feeling really strong, they can try the first half of Strong Finish (5.10) on the same TR setup as Great Beginnings.

There aren't any climbs in GF that are higher than Dihedrals and Seculsion areas, so they'll just have to start climbing harder stuff if they get bored with these two areas.

Any one from just south of the NOVA area....like Charlottesville?
I am in need of a partner/mentor for climbing outdoors. I climb about 5.9-5.10 in the gym. To this point my out side climbing has consisted of a guided trip to Seneca and a fair amount of top roping in the central virginia area (most of which has not been rated). I have done several "mock leads" while on toprope and I am very interested in taking the next step to leading, but I would really like to follow on some routes before I do (for obvious reasons). Any one interested feel free to drop me a reply or PM (also my email address is at the bottom).

Hey, climbed with jbroscious today at Great Falls. Good time around the Aid Box and my first time back outside in the DC area since my return from overseas. If you're looking to go in the DC area during the week, he's ready and a good partner. Later!

I'm going to Great Falls tomorrow (Friday, 9/24) with some folks from the DC Yahoo group, from 9 am to 3ish. If you want to join us, we are meeting at the climber's parking lot at 9 am.

Wow, this tread is still hanging on in spite of DCOutdoorrockclimbing. I am a little surprised!
Is the weather messing up the plans much?

Need a GF partner for after work. I can always get to Difficult Run parking lot by 5:30 and a lot of times by 4:30. I know the days are getting shorter and colder but don't care. Hopefully someone else with the same schedule won't either. I expect I'll be getting out there freezing my ass off until mid December or so. TR 5.10 solidly and am easy to get along with. Hit me up if you're down...

I may be making a trip to the Gunks this fall. If I stay at the multi-abuse area, I will surely be rolling in the mud.

Hey, looking to get back into climbing after a bit of a coma.. er.. sabatical. I'm into trad stuff mostly (what I've done mostly) and used to be around a 5.9-5.10 lead or follow (I'm kinda stupid that way) I've got most all the gear, if you don't mind long runouts. I'm in the Culpeper area now, but used to do the Great Falls/Carderock thing on a daily basis. If you think you can put up with me, im or e-mail me... I'm actually quite safe 8^) ... no really

Does anyone have beta on the Rock Creek Park bouldering in DC. I checked out the route listing, but the info seemed dated. Anyone planning on heading there this weekend? Is access still o.k. I've never been there?
Thanks

I've been TR at Great Falls for a couple of years but am looking for some beta on bouldering spots. Mostly on the Virginia side but Im flexible. I always see stuff along the trails but just wondering if there were any other good spots a little off the beaten path. Thanks.

Pearl Jam Rock:
For Bouldering, check out Carderock, across the river from Great Falls.
There is a lot of highball/slab climbing there. The rock is slick and polished, bet there are quite a few problems to be found, of varying height and difficulty. There are most always other boulderers around, who will probably show you around. Some of my favorite stuff there is actually away from the main cliffline, closer to the river. If you are at the far upstream end, looking at the cliffs, look for a faint trail into the woods behind you. Explore a bit, and you'll find some more secluded boulders with more "traditional" problems. Also, there are usually large groups at the main clifs, so the wood/river boulders offer some nice seclusion. Have fun,
BB

My friend and I usually climb at Buzzard or Crescent Rocks. We have climbed there all summer so we want to get introduced to some new areas within 1.5-2 hour drive time. We want to try a new area on Sunday. So I am looking for someone who would be willing to show us some good climbs, etc. I have all the necessary gear. Just tell me the time, place and how to get there.

Thanks ahead of time!

Daniela

Hello Everyone...
I'm in NOVA for the holidays. I'm looking for a partner to go North and climb some ice. I have all personal gear and 2 screws. I can go pretty much anytime until 1/6. Send me a private message if interested or email me at deschamps1000@hotmail.com
I'm a 25 year old male graduate student.

Zack,
Stop rubbing it in.
All us poor saps stuck in florescent hell and you get a perfect day at the end of a cold December.

I hope you got out yesterday.

Yeah probably something along those lines.
