Participant Information

Meeting time is around 6pm, but we can change based on everyone's availability. I don't know why it's not showing the time on the left.

The plan is to go to Dennet Lake Bluffs. We will setup an anchor at the top of the SARchasm route. We will try rappelling down and then climbing back up via Texas prussik.

If we have multiple ropes, we can also setup a non-free rappelling line.

Other skills that would be good to practice would be:
- locking off your rappel with a mule hitch in mid air
- passing a knot

If we have time, we could get a few climbs in as well, but the focus will be on practicing the skills above.
