Ingalls is an amazing rock climb.  The approach is moderate but please know that it involves a fair amount of rock scrambling to get to the base of the climb. 

Anyone who is interested is welcome to contact me.  If there is more interest than there are open spots on the climb, then I will be giving priority to those in need of credit (and using a lottery system, if necessary). 

In your email, please respond to the following questions:

1) Do you need a rock climb to count toward graduation?  Y/N

2) Do you need a misc. climb to count toward graduation? Y/N

3) Do you work weekends and are you limited to mid-week climbs? Y/N
