We will plan to do some sport climbing at the Interstate Park/Headlight Point area - these are good easy routes. Difficulty will depend on how hard the leaders want to climb, but likely towards the easier end of things. Mountain Project link to the area: https://www.mountainproject.com/area/106512916/interstate-park

Approach - it's about a mile and 600 feet of gain to Headlight Point. If we leave the parking lot at 4:05 we should be at the crag around 4:30, we'll climb until 8:30 or so, and be back at the cars around 9. 

Participants - this is pretty straightforward sport climbing, so it's great for leaders getting back into the spring swing of things outdoors, and basic students who felt confident at their rock field trips and are good lead belayers are welcome. All branches welcome.

Weather - if the forecast is bad, we will cancel with no alternate plans. Maybe we'll reschedule to the next week depending on folks' availability. 

Gear - assistant leaders, please bring a rope, quickdraws, and anchor materials. Everyone, assisted braking devices are highly recommended along with all the usual rock climbing stuff. HEADLAMPS MANDATORY!
