Kristall's Restaurant, Leavenworth 8:15 Saturday.


Entering Leavenworth from the north, Kristall's is about one mile into town on the left.  Large sign.

Two days of rock fun in lovely Leavenworth.  Primarily for the Warren/Wallace SIG Basic students and alumni, but this is an extra activity and not an official part of the Basic Course, and anyone with some rock training may attend with leader's permission.

Saturday will be split, with half the group doing friction slabs and the other half cracks, then we'll switch places at midday.  Sunday we'll all be together at Playground Point, which offers face, crack and slab opportunities.  All climbing will be top-roped.

Sat night we will sleep in a lovely log chalet, sharing the rent, and have a potluck dinner followed by potluck Sunday breakfast.
