Please confirm you will be attending the Lover's Leap/Phantom Spires trip scheduled for the weekend after next: Saturday June 7 and Sunday June 8.
Currently about twelve people have expressed interest so we could have six show :-)
My plan is to leave the Touchstone Concord (now Diablo Rock Gym) off Willow Pass in Concord at 6:15 am Saturday morning. I can take two riders with me.
Let's meet in front of the Strawberry Lodge at 9:00 am Saturday 6/7 where we can pair or quadruple up. Bring what gear you have. We can reconvene after climbing at theStrawberry lodge bar at say sixish and have a burger and tell tall tales. For accommodations my plan is to car camp in the national forest behind Strawberry (there are many great spots for free and there is lots of wood for a campfire). Alternatives are the lodge itself or the campground or South Lake Tahoe. Sunday can be planned Saturday night. Bring your own munchies, tent, sleeping bag etc.
If the weather forecast is dire on Thursday 6/5 I will send out a cancellation.
Respond all if you need a ride, or can provide a ride, or gear etc. Feel free to forward to other interested parties.
This is a great trip to practice your skills and meet others before heading out into the real wilderness. So far I have:
Gawlas, Julius - ?
Binz, Annie - Tehachapi
Dohar, Stephanie - SF (possible)
Holl, Susan - San Jose
Hood, Harrison - Santa Rosa (Sunday?)
Lal, Munish - Chico
Makim, Maitrey - San Jose?
