Vantage camping area, early (shortly after sunrise).

Field Trip #3 is about dialing in skills and increasing confidence. We'll focus our time on climbing. We will plan this outing, as a group, as we get closer to this date.

Vantage is HOT in the summer. Bring plenty of food, water, electrolytes and sun protection. We'll climb and chase the shade until it gets too hot. I like to go for a swim in the river after. Everyone is invited; bring some swimwear and a towel :)

This area is great for car camping. Given the early Saturday start time, I encourage you to drive out Friday and spend the night.


Instructors: please read the instructor (and student) expectations on the parent course page.
