Saturday, September 1, 2018 || Jemez Climbing

To start off, we have a climbing trip planned for this Saturday that is going out to Las Conchas in the Jemez! We will meet around 8 am in A Lot (between Johnson field and Central) and we'll probably be out there until 3 pm. Things to consider for this trip: 

  1. Please let me know if you need a ride or if you can drive!
  2. If you need gear - please let me know what shoe size you are and what harness size (XS, S, M, L). 
  3. Be sure to bring your own snacks, water, and proper shoes that you can do some light hiking in!
  4. There is a $10 dues fee! 
  5. Others to consider but aren't necessary - sunscreen, sunglasses, a backpack, etc. 

Please let me know if you have

Trips/Events to Look Forward To:

September 8/9||Socorro or Jemez Beginner Climbing Trip - We will be going outdoors either to the Box Canyon in Socorro or back to the Jemez to rock climb! If it's not too hot it will definitely be in Socorro. There's some amazing climbs for beginners in the Box so fingers crossed! :)

December/January || Ouray Ice Climbing Clinic - We have our annual Ice Climbing clinic at Ouray, Colorado. We hire a guide, stay at a hotel, provide gear, and get to have an amazing time on some ice walls. It is limited to 8 students, who we chose based on involvement in the club! It is more of a learning/beginners trip so climbing experience required is minimal. However, you do have to go on a few trips with us so we can make sure you have the basic knowledge needed. It's never too early to let me know if you are interested!

September 22, 2018 ||Mountain Rescue Brew Fest - As it sounds, there is a brew fest on September 22, 2018 and it supports our local ABQ Mountain Rescue!

Beastly Bash - Just a heads up this was unfortunately cancelled for this Saturday :(

-----------------------------------

Thank you so much everyone, and I hope to see you all this Saturday! If not, I hope you have a wonderful weekend :)
