Interest List: JTNO Outdoor Bouldering Weekend

Attention monkeyfolk and mountain goats! 🐒🐐

The past year bouldering events have really found its way into JongTNO, and this year we would like to make a weekender out of it. This will be a weekend of climbing & camping, so if that sounds like your cup of tea, sign up right now to this interest list!

Note bene:

  • There will be a limited number of people we can take along in this trip, so please only sign up if you really want to go.
  • Outdoor climbing is significantly different from indoor climbing and quite a bit harder. It is fine if you've never climbed outdoors yet (most of us haven't), but we do require at least some indoor bouldering experience and confidence in your own capabilities and even more importantly in your own limits.

When will we go?

As soon as we have a filled interest list we will finalize the date. We are now aiming for shortly before the summer holidays, e.g. somewhere in June.

Where will we go?

We have decided to go to Avalonia, Germany, which is approximately a 3 hour drive or 4 hour train ride away. Deciding on the location we've considered travel time and accessibility (with public transport), and the amount (and spread in grades) of the available routes. Because of the location, the intention is to be able to group up and leave to the crag early on a Friday, arrive somewhere in the early afternoon, and get some short, easy climbing in on the first day to get our bearings. We then have a full Saturday for climbing shenanigans and can say our farewells to the rocks on Sunday without haste.

How much will it cost?

The cost of this trip will hopefully be limited. It mainly depends on travel cost, the rented gear and food. Think of somewhere in the range of €80-100. Could be a little more, could be a little less. Only one way to find out :)

What gear will I need?

Things you will need to bring:

  • Climbing shoes: If you don't have your own, you can see if you could rent them for a weekend or lend them from a friend.
  • Camping gear: Tent (or share a tent with someone else on the trip 😏), sleeping bag, mattress, etc.
  • Further: brushes, chalk and some pieces of carpet / sturdy rag to wipe your climbing shoes clean before every ascent is needed. Bring it if you have it.

Other stuff we'll arrange:

  • Crash pads: We will rent them, but if you have any crash pads be sure to let us know!

If you don’t have some of the required things (like shoes or a tent), we will set up a chatgroup with everyone going to figure that stuff out. Especially tents, some people might have a spare to lend”.
