The May club trip will take place on May 18 and 19 at Moore’s Wall in North Carolina.
Located in Hanging Rock State Park just north of Winston-Salem, Moore’s Wall has an abundance of steep, juggy climbs on quartzite rock. The overwhelming majority of the climbs are traditionally protected, and most are multi-pitch. The area tends to stay shady and cool, making it an ideal destination in warmer months.
The park is a little over 5 hours drive from Atlanta. Camping is available in the park itself, and additional commercial camping is nearby. Hotels and B&Bs can be found within a 30 minute drive from the trailhead, mainly along US-52. Everyone can make their own arrangements as far as travel, food and lodging goes.
Because this climbing area isn’t appropriate for large groups of beginners, we are asking that anyone planning on going on the trip please sign up using our online form. This will give us an idea how many people are going, and ensure we have a healthy ratio of experienced to inexperienced climbers attending. In the event an overwhelming number of inexperienced people wish to attend, we may have to arrange an alternate trip to nearby Pilot Mountain — which provides a more welcoming (but unfortunately more crowded) environment.
Please try to sign up by the end of this week if you are going. We plan to start a group email between attending members in case folks want to arrange camping, travel, etc. Some parties may wish to go a few days early or stay later as well.
Hope to see you there!
