Halloween is months away, and this trip has nothing to do with halloween!

Its time to scale some rock, and there is no place more convenient than old Malibu Creek. We will set us some top ropes and bring along a few bouldering pads, so there's fun for all to be had! Right now, you are thinking "Kevin, there is NO WAY this could get better!" and you are SO WRONG. There is also a swimming hole and lead climbing for those with the equipment so its pretty much disneyland without the lines.

Malibu climbing is super accesible to all skill levels, so its a great place to climb outdoors for the first time (but there are also some pretty dang hard routes for the rock rats out there). 

We will leave some time Saturday, either in the morning or early afternoon. Pretty much everything else is up to how many cars we have and how much quipment we can get ahold of. If you have a car, let us know and we may be able to open up the trip for more people! Everyone wins!

Included is a link that pretty well describes whats going down - start at about 0:50 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnSwz-9LLc4
