The Potomac Appalachian Trail Club Mountaineering Section (PATC-MS) will host social top rope climbing and training for outdoor skills every first Wednesday of every month at Carderock from April through October. We are calling this event Carderock First Wednesdays. This monthly event is open to all climbers, regardless of PATC-MS membership status. No outdoor climbing experience is necessary, but you should be proficient in belaying. Please bring your own climbing shoes, harness, and belay device- the club will not provide these. The club will provide a few ropes, but bring your top rope setup if you have one!
If you are new to PATC-MS, look for our Carderock Stewards when you arrive. Starting around 5pm, they will be at the crag in red club t-shirts and can help introduce you to the club and climbing at Carderock.
In April and May, starting at 6pm, we will also run some basic skills training for those looking to transition outdoors. The clinic in April is "Top Rope Anchor Systems".
