Actual meeting location TBD. We will probably not meet at the YMCA, but this is a good placeholder. Plan to meet at 7:00 PM and be finished before 9:00 PM. I will contact all participants about meeting specifics a few days beforehand.

We will meet up to prepare for the first field trip.

Discussion points:

  • Goals of the course
  • Climbing at the crag: etiquette, climbing commands
  • Gear
  • Techniques for placing protection and building anchors
