I've been noticing quite a few threads looking for people to climb with in NOVA lately. I figured we consolidate these random threads and try and get a thread thatís consistent.

I realize dcoutdoorrockclimbing does a darn good job of this, but there's no harm in consolidating threads like these here at rc.com.

So post up!
Going climbing this weekend? Looking for someone to climb with?
Planning an local event? Post up!

I'm in nova, and looking for climbing partners. Back home from school in new england. Havent been to sport rock, thought I'd check it out this week. If anyone wants to climb let me know. Sterling sounds good, because its two miles from the Old Dominion Brewery...

Hey cantdog,
A couple friends and I usually go to sport rock in Alexandria every Tuesday and Thursday night from 7 to 9. Unfortunately, I won't be able to go tonight. I like Old Dominion being so close to Sterling though...
What are peoples plans for the weekend?

Hey all, I think I'm hitting the falls on Saturday, so if your there, look for the young guy with the bald head and a red pack. ( I just described 60 % of the fools at the falls didn't I? )

Zap, I'm setting up plans for the weekend of the 17th. I'll be down there this time.

Aikibujin, sorry to hear that man, get better.

ropeburn, what time you planning on getting there? I've got class until 1 then I'll jet over. Keep an eye out for a tall kid with a pony tail and red/black pack.(The other 40%)

I was at carderock yesterday, so I guess its time to check out the other side of the river!

ropeburn, my elbow isn't too bad, just overuse (pulling too hard, need to learn to use feet more I guess). I'm taking a month off from climbing just to be safe. I've seen your name a lot in the route database (namely GF), I wonder if I ever ran into you there.

cantdog (zssager?), sorry you didn't get to climb. GF is much more spread out than CR. Without a guidebook and not knowing the area it's pretty hard to find someone there. At least it was a nice day to be in the park. How did you like the climbs just from looking at them?

A few people from DCOutdoorRockClimbing went to CR on Saturday, I tagged along to practice some self-rescue techniques. We had four ropes set up, stuff between 5.5 and 5.10. I only climbed the easiest slabby route on account of my elbow, but it was good just to get out on a nice day.

Near the end of the day I was a little pressed for time to do one more easy climb (boss was having a BBQ that night). I wanted to swap rope with a nearby party on Sweethog, but they were reluctant... which was totally fine, it's their gear. I just hope I wasn't too pushy and came across as a jerk. Apologize to that party if they ever read this.

Yep, cantdog=zssager. Its funny, growing up in this area and this was the first time I've been to great falls. Pretty cool looking area, and some of the climbs looked like a lot of fun. Lots of good spots to hang out too. And the rock looked a hell of a lot different than the stuff I was climbing earlier in the week on the otherside.

I was thinking of heading over to carderock to see if anyone was still around but it sounded like everyone got there pretty early, so I figured no one would be around at 2 or so.

Anyone interested in something relatively local this weekend (7/17-18) (GF, Carderock, Sugarloaf, even Old Rag)?

Hey, I'd be up for one of those 3 this weekend. I can't head all the way out to Seneca since I need to be at least quasi nearby DC to show my apt during some hours this weekend, but Sugarloaf could be cool. Sunday would probably work easier for me. Let me know. I can drive.

Which "area"? It's up 270 - past Germantown, MD. It's small (in terms of # of routes) and a bit spread out (in terms of areas) but I find it to be a good area. Most TR though there are routes you can lead on trad gear.

Sorry I can't give you more in directions but I only know how to get there by sight. More info in the Horst guide.

Brian--We may have to play it by ear. The forecast looks like thunderstorms for most of Sunday. 60%. How typical. We shall see. I HATE when weather interferes with my climbing. :p
