    Wanted to start a post for the club's upcoming trips to Donner Pass July 27th and Bowman Lake July 28.  Please post any questions, ridesharing or gear issues.  I have a Nissan Xterra for the event on the 28th and we will likely need another highish clearance car to help get club members to the crag so if you've got one let me know!

    So far as gear all members need to bring a harness, helmet and rock shoes.  We have belay devices, extra carabiners, anchor material and rope so don't worry about that.  This event is designed as a day of cragging but if anyone wants practice mock leading I'll bring extra draws and a short rope to give that experience as well.  

    I'm guessing it's going to be very sunny and warm so bring water and sunscreen/sun protective gear.  The 28th is scheduled to end at 3pm but I don't mind staying around until the sun sets if there is interest.

    Hi Doug,

    Confirming I will be at Donner Pass on the 27th as registered. This will be a gym to crag transition for me so super excited to step on some Sierra granite. See you there.

    I have a Honda CR-V. Will bring my draws, rope, gear for top rope as well. I'm an experienced trad and sport climber. Love leading but I know this is mostly a TR day.  I'm looking forward to meeting you all and exploring this new area for me. See you tomorrow!
