Caver's Route

Post by agentWTF » Sun Apr 05, 2009 4:03 pm

Anyone ever taken a team of 4 up Caver's Route? I'm not too sure if it will be too cramped or not at the belay ledges. Any info would be primo.

Nope. I've taken a team of 9 though. Plenty of room.

But he said "sweet as" which is more cool because each individual gets to insert their own word, such as "sweet as my dad's scrotum."

The only spot that might get crowded is the "cave" . You can have people on both sides. There's plenty of room at the entrance and room for 3 or so on the exit. Cavers is always fun unless it's wet.

Exactly. I picked up the saying in New Zealand. I spent 6 months there, and now I can't seem to shake the habbit :?

I've taken 4 up with headlamps around midnight, worked out just fine.

I just took 4 up with me this past weekend and had no problems. Though it did take FOREVER.

That may actually be a good thing. See, I'm heading down to RRG for about 4 days, and the people in my group aren't nearly as "gung ho" as I would like for them to be. I'm hoping that Caver's can be a good mission to do on an off day. In my opinion, if you have 4 days to climb, there's no room for an off day...

so why waste one on caver's route...everyone knows this is considered scrambling, ant not climbing, so please refrain from using the word" climbing" when discussing this hike.

My beta:

Just take shoes, chalk bag (with belt, so you can swing it to the side), one draw, one locker, one atc and one rope (though it might need to be 70 meters to get down from the ledge in one rap). Any more gear will just get in the way.
