Sunday, 10/20/2019, Seal Rock East Face

Seal Rock is the large slab, shaped like a barking seal, above Bear Canyon. We'll climb the lower slabs, then the NE ridge to the summit. One 165' rappel puts us back on terra firma. This is a free hanging rappel, so you must be confident dangling in space while lowering yourself. All participants must have climbing gear: a helmet, belay device and glove, harness, several locking carabiners, autoblock, a personal anchor (webbing or PAS) and rock climbing shoes.

Saturday, 10/26/2019, Second Flatiron Freeway

The Freeway route on the Second Flatiron is an excellent beginner climbing route. Although this route is frequently climbed unroped as a scramble, the expectation on this climb is that the group will climb as rope teams. It is about 7 pitches and is rated class 4 with a few low class 5 moves with some exposure. The climb is rated 5.0.Bring helmet, climbing harness, a couple of locking carabiners and slings or personal anchor system, a belay/rappel device, rock shoes if you have them. Approach shoes with sticky rubber soles work well for this climb. Bring a day pack, snacks, and water. We'll climb with a small pack. You should have some rock climbing training such as a CMC basic mountaineering course. Leader(s) will bring ropes and rock pro for the climb.The number of participants who can be accommodated depends on the number of available leaders. If a wait list develops for this climb, leader(s) will schedule additional climbs of similar duration and difficulty. If you are willing to co-lead on this climb or similar climbs, please contact the trip leader.
