Of course, dependent on dry weather. If we've had dry weather for a bit we'll go to Gritscone, if it has only been dry for a day we'll go to Headlight Point as it dries faster. Single pitch cragging, starting with easier stuff in the 5.6-5.8 range to get back into the feel of outdoor climbing after a winter on plastic.

Please be in decent hiking shape, it's about a mile up to the crags and we'll be moving with few if any breaks in order to have enough time to get in climbing before it gets dark. If you aren't comfortable walking uphill for an hour with your climbing gear without any long breaks, consider waiting for a weekend trip with less time pressure.

IMPORTANT: We'll be climbing until it is dark and hiking back through the forest after dark, bring a HEADLAMP.
