National park closures got ya down? Tired of lugging around a backpack the size of a small child on your hips? Ever feel the desire to just get on top of a big rock? Join us this fall break to climbing in BISHOP. It is not a national park, but it is one of the best bouldering sites in the world! (Google it, I checked).

Details are still in the works, but we are planning on leaving sometime Friday and returning late Monday. Yes, we will be camping. Yes, we will be bouldering. Yes, we will be having fun and looking good. No, you do not need any experience or gear. 

DRIVERS WE NEED YOU! Trip capacity right now is dependent on number of cars. Hopefully if we can get 4 or 5 cars, we can take 20ish people. If we do not get that many cars, we cannot take that many people. Simple. I may be forced to reduce the size of the trip if we can't get enough cars. So please please please email or message me if you can drive! And check back for more information in the next week. I will post more details once we have them!

EDIT: The trip cap at 20 is just a random number. We will take as many people as we have cars for. So if you didn't sign up on time, put your name down and we'll see what we can do! CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE A CAR OR KNOW ANYONE WHO DOES!
