Meet at the columns but there will also be a group on the south wall. I'll be setting up ropes as early as 5:30 pm and not a deal breaker to arrive closer to 6:30 if traffic tends to be an issue.

**First dibs for sign up go to students in Single Pitch Trad Courses. Sign up opens to all Monday April 23 at 9 am**

Practice climbing cracks and get pointers from more seasoned crack climbers. Come prepared to fist, foot and hand jam.

We'll have a group of 6 climbers at the columns and a group of 4 climbers on the south wall and rotate stations.
