9/26 Meeting Minutes

Hey folks,

In case you missed our awesome meeting tonight, here's what went down.

Sign ups for the New River Gorge trips were tonight.  We'll be going down over fall break, from Friday, October 6 to Monday, October 9.  The New has some seriously sweet climbing, some neat caves to crawl through, and a whole bunch of trails just waiting to be hiked.  

POC Trail Trots will be heading out from the big ol' tent in Schenley Plaza Monday at 6pm and Wednesday at 7pm.  

If you want to climb cool alpine summits like George Mallory, but not die on some big hill like George Mallory, check out the Explorer's Club of Pittsburgh's Mountaineering School.  They'll teach you all kinds of cool stuff about climbing mountains, and then finish with a winter summit of Mt. Washington in New Hampshire.  If that sounds like your cup of tea, there's more info to be had here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwBR6qBBxsm5SnVHS1J3RFF4b0k4ajBvU2hiM2pyX09OZjNB/view
If you've got any questions talk to Gerard (grt10@pitt.edu) or Ryan (rht5018@gmail.com)

Ascend is having a bouldering competition on Saturday, October 7th, so if you're one of those people that thinks ropes are aid and cite Nalle Hukkataival as your personal savior, this is your time to shine.  There will be a free screening of the bouldering film Uncharted Lines at the after party.

Hope everyone has a great week.

Best,
Jon
