Hi all,

I am in town for a conference in Colorado Springs and am hoping to get some climbing in on the tail ends of it. I am looking for people to climb with all day sunday 6/22 and the afternoon of 6/25 (conference ends at 12pm).

I climb around 5.11 sport and 5.10 trad. I would be up for following harder stuff as well and happy to lead lower grades all day. Really I am just looking to get out there climbing

I will be bringing my rack, but don't mind climbing sport the whole day as well.

Preferably looking for someone who doesn't mind climbing in the rain (looks like sunday might be wet).

If interested, call/text 703-328-9740.

Thanks.

Post climb celebration drinks with a sweet line in...
If it's going to rain don't climb at the garden. You will make some locals angry (who may yell at you) and at worst have a huge hold break off on you.

If you have to stay local Cheyenne Canyon is a much safer bet in wet conditions and IMO has better climbing. There's also tons of stuff for sport climbers and trad climbers within an hour away (shelf, elevenmile, turkey rocks, cathedral spires, devils head, etc.)

Oh that is very good to know. I certainly wouldnt want to be damaging the rock. Things I don't think about being from the east coast away from sandstone! Thanks for the other location advice as well. Kyle Montanio
