Participant Information

Please find your partner before you sign up and ask them to join the trip online when you do.  Contact me if you don't have a partner but wish to join.  There are several routes on Yak Peak that could interest pairs of climbers.  All climbers must have experience leading multi-pitch slab routes at the level of the route(s) they're interested in... plus have all the necessary gear (including helmet).  Research Speedway and SOMWOW.  I've climbed SOMWOW and am interesting in Speedway.

Here's a video I found online of a pair climbing Speedway
