Hey, Can I get in on this too?

Hell yes. This is a group thang. Everyone should have a group thang going in addition to their exclusive partnerships. And we don't have very regular partners...so...

OK EVERYONE! VOTE PLEASE.

As the week progresses and the weather reports roll in, we'll be able to nail down a plan. If it's sunny, the sky's the limit. We can go anywhere. If it's marginal, then we'll probably end up at Golden Cliffs (sigh). No matter, for we'll make the best of it whatever we do.

So for now let's vote on where we go. Suggestions are so far:

Golden Cliffs - sport area, warm, basalt rock, fairly crowded.
Eldorado Canyon - trad, can be warm or windy, sandstone, excellent
Boulder Canyon - primarily trad, but some sport, granite, some sun.
Clear Creek Canyon - primarily sport, gneiss, pretty fun place actually

So vote for one of those four destinations. While you are at it, mention what gear you own and whether or not you even lead trad. If most of you don't, then those of us that do will need to pick up the gear slack. And let's plan on either having a beer afterwards or some food.

-Tim

I vote Golden Cliffs because I've got a particular climb I'm working there. But if we end up going somewhere else I've got a rack and I lead trad up to about 5.8 or 9.

So is that where you've been climbing lately? Last time it was Cynical Pinnacle, and right before the stupid season gets shut down by the raptor closure. Get out on the rock this week didn't you?

I'm working on that raptor closure deal. I want to see written proof of these rules DIRECTLY from JEffCo. Every year I call and every year it's the same old schtick- noone knows what's up.

Today? South Platte again...5 pitches on Helen's dome, then 4 pitches on Acid Rock, and finally two pitches on Velcro wall to stand on top of Sheep rock and 'ave a look 'round. Incredible day...incredible weather. Ya gotta get out there, Stitchy.

Vedauwoo...yeah...been wanting to get back...weather looks good...Cynical is up in the air, so...Veda seems like the next best place to hone the crack endurance for I. Creek.

Hmmm...this sounds like fun. If it's warm I would be up for meeting some new people and doing a little climbing. I live in Westminster so all of the destinations work for me.

Personally I've never climbed trad, so I don't have any trad gear, but I do have enough sport gear to set up 2 routes. I'm not a gear whore, nooooo never. :wink:

PM when you guys figure out the detail. :)

Ah, I see what you are up to. Yes, Vedauwoo would be the place to do some splitter crack. I'd be happy to go up there sometime.

I vote Golden Cliffs just cause Ive already told some people about it. Also this might be a good time for me to state my specs.....

I sport only but could follow a trad line. I climb in the 5.8 to 5.10 range but will try anything on a top rope. It sounds like Golden might have the best mix of stuff for everybody and different skill levels to. I have just started to lead, you can count my leads on one hand.

I'm in for Saturday. Golden Cliffs works for me. I'll have my kiddos in tow who will be climbing, hunting for bugs and building forts. And no worries for those of you who've had bad karma w/kiddos at the crags. They're very well behaved and a pleasure to be around. :-) Plus GC will work well since I'm sure there will be a wide variety of levels here. You can TR a bunch of the routes there and there are several moderate sport leads. I have full sport rack, which I'll bring and gear to set up TR's. Now let's just hope for nice weather. I've gotta say yesterday the weather in the Platte was unbeatable!

Sunday may be a non-kid day. So I may need a partner for Eldo then if the weather's good.

Yo, I just saw this thread- looks like we need a boulder climbers thread!!
I've lived in boulder my whole life and definitely have trouble finding partners sometimes, work schedules confilict etc. If any one wants to head to Eldo with me this weekend I'll be pushing my limits on some "easy" 10s
Trad of course, probably the west ridge, where its always sunny and warm :wink:

I would prefer eldo myself but Golden would be OK too.

I have a pretty decent trad rack, 1.5sets nuts, set of cams from small alien to about BD #4, set of hexs that I hardly use, rope and all the quickdraws, various slings, biners, lockers, cordelette etc... I also have a boulder pad if anyone wants to boulder.

Timstitch,

If the group goes to golden and you (or anyone else) really want to go to eldo, let me know. I can follow up to about 5.9, have lead at Jtree to 5.7, tahquitz to 5.6 and I am committed to getting better. I have the whole weekend free. Could do Golden on sat and eldo on sunday or just about anywhere else.

My vote is Golden Cliffs because of my complete lack of Trad experience and like zozo I am a bit new to sport lead. Took a class a while back and have been doing a bunch of mock leads lately, up to easy 5.10s, TR up to mid/easy 5.11. Would love to get out on some real rock and add get some more 5.8 - 5.10 sport leads under my belt.

What time is everybody getting together and where should we meet?

Sounds like a blast!

Kyle

OK, Golden cliffs on saturday. What time and where exactly are we all meeting?

Remember, I just moved here so I am not exactly sure where it is.

Is it mostly sport climbing? Can I leave the trad rack at home and just bring the rope and draws?

You can leave your trad gear at home. There are some trad lines there too but mostly sport. But the weather isn't looking so great for Sat. Looks like we may get snow.

40% chance of snow, looks like it might be one of the colder days as well. I am up for a date change to Sunday, but will brave the elements (minus snow which equals slick wet rock) if need be on Saturday.

I vote for Golden on Sat. regardless of weather. lol

I lead 10.d ish sport and pretty solid .8 trad. I have a full trad rack, 10 sport draws, and 2 ropes.

If someone wants to hit Eldo on Sunday I can lead the moderate classics on the wind tower. Or follow. Or whatever.

I could'nt climb sunday - So if the weather does go bad I might suggest meeting up at paradise in denver. That way we could at least meet and put names to faces and that kind of thing. Otherwise I say we just try again next weekend.

I'll be working late every weeknight this week it looks like. Don't freak about the weather just yet. It's only Tuesday night. Wait until Friday morning to make plans. And yes, we will definitely do this the following weekend if this weekend gets snowed out. We can also all go climb in a gym somewhere as well.

So, shall we just make this the ongoing Front Range Climbing thread?

Read you later...

Does 9:00 sound good at the first parking lot at Golden cliffs?
Here are directions for those that may need them.

I think timstich is right, Im not counting this weekend out till thursday night early fri, but everytime I check the weather saturday looks worse and worse. Mid 30's wind and possible snow is the latest.

I think we should make this an ongoing front range thread, maybe we could edit the subject line?

I would say Paradise on sat, and I go to the gym on sunday here in the springs if anyone is close by. It doesnt open till 1:00 on sundays (it is the springs ya know!) If the weather is at all decent we could possible do a few routes at the garden as well.

Who here is interested in ticking off a bunch of 14 er's. Im making a list of peaks I want to do this summer, I'll post it later.
