The plan is to leave after work on Wednesday and set up a base camp at the Klipchuck Campground, which is halfway between Washington Pass and Mazama. From here teams will have easy access to alpine rock routes in and around Washington Pass as well as sport climbing near Mazama. Participants will be screened and are expected to be self sufficient and come with a partner. Please let the trip organizer know who your climbing partner is.The campground at Klipchuck fills up on weekends so arriving on Wednesday or Thursday should enable participants to get a site; you can have up to 4 people and two tents in a site. Some of the routes in the area for groups to climb are The Beckey Route on Liberty Bell and The Southwest Rib on South Early Winter Spire, plus many others. Mazama climbing includes routes like Prime Rib of Goat, 12 pitches of 5.9 sport climbing as well as single-pitch cragging, a nice little swimming hole and a great general store with a coffee shop and microbrew beer. More routes and information can be found in the Washington Pass Climbing Guide by Ian Nicholson.
