When: Friday, April 12 – Sunday, April 14

We will be car camping just outside the main canyon close to Witches Canyon. Directions and specific location details will be shared. We will be able to explore new rock formations, canyons, and trails. There will be rock climbing on Saturday with another opportunity to earn the Climbing Merit Badge. Bring good hiking shoes and layers of warm clothing because the nights can get chilly. 

Previous climbing experience or gear (harness & climbing shoes) is NOT required but is recommended so if you have it, bring it.  NOTE: You can rent climbing shoes ($10 for the weekend) at REI which we highly recommend. Get a size that fits tightly with no wiggle room. We will be providing helmets, a few harnesses and belay devices for the troop. 

There’s plenty of hiking and hanging around camp available for those not interested in climbing. It’s about a 3 hour drive to the San Luis Valley so we will try to carpool to limit the vehicles needed. We will meet at the barn on Friday and plan to leave nlt 5pm. We plan to be home Sunday afternoon and will send an update on timing that morning.
