It's not too late to sign up for rock climbing at the Devil's Lake Campout! We need at least a few more seniors join us with outfitters Vertical Endeavors who will make this a most awesome sports activity. The cost is $89 per scout, $40 of which will be covered by the Troop. I need to know if you can make it by no later than Sunday, October 26th so I can secure our reservation. See below for description:
Departure: Saturday morning 8:30 at Devil's Lake. After we reach the base of the climbs, we will gear up and have a 15 minutes safety talk with the scouts about the dangers of rock climbing and the basic Leave No Trace ethics. Climbs will be selected by our guide to represent a wide range of difficulties, from beginner to moderate. We will break down the climbs around 4pm to make our way back down to the parking lot by 5 pm.
What you will need to bring: A back pack to carry water, lunch, sunscreen, rain gear plus any gear the guide may need help with helmets, shoes, etc. Since the trip is in November, appropriate layers of clothing. Our outfitter will provide the gear necessary (i.e. harnesses, shoes, chalk, etc.)
Let me know ASAP if you will make it so I can secure our reservation.
