We'll take the Mettmen Alp gondola up, then have a large area for climbing available in the sun and shade. Protected content

This activity requires rock climbing skills and your ability to solidly belay a lead climber. If you are experienced either in the climbing gym or outdoors either as a follower or a lead climber, we'd love to have you.
If you have not climbed before, this activity is not for you.

Equipment needed - everyone:
- rock climbing shoes
- climbing harness
- belay device and locking carabiner
- climbing helmet (I have 1 extra)
- lots of water, food for the day
- sunscreen!!!

Every 2nd or 3rd person (we'll align on that prior to the trip):
- rope Protected content , 9.5mm or thicker)
- quickdraws/slings
- personal anchor

We're planning a leisurely day of climbing in the Protected content . If you're a stronger climber, please do join us and we can follow your leads.

If anyone wants to practice rappelling in preparation to multi-pitch climbing, I'd be up for that too.

Climbing is a dangerous sport. This is a private trip. Each person is individually responsible and liable.
