Activity: Rock Climbing
Difficulty: Moderate/strenuous- we will be hiking to the routes and then climbing all morning, which is tiring. Previous climbing experience not necessary.
Who doesn’t have Friday class? You’re in luck! On Friday the 26th, we’re heading out for a day of climbing at Echo Cliffs. After an early meet up, we’ll drive out to the park. When we get there, we’ll have a 45 minute hike to the routes, where we’ll go over belay technique for anyone who needs a refresher. And then we’ll hit the rock!
Guides will put up beginner routes as well as more difficult routes. We will provide all the gear– harnesses, climbing shoes, helmets, chalk, etc. That said, if you have your own, feel free to bring it. We’ll also bring lunch and snacks for you guys, maybe a slackline. Stoked!!
Meet: Meet 6:30 am outside of TroGro. Transportation Provided
Return: Back at USC by 3:30 pm
