New River Gorge: Memorial Day Weekend

Looking to get out of town and climb this Memorial Day Weekend?  Then look no further!  PATC-MS is organizing a three-night event at the New River Gorge for the long weekend (24-27 May 2019).  

The New River Gorge is a mecca for single pitch sport and trad routes. This is not an instructional clinic/event.  Please arrange for a partner prior to the weekend - do not expect that others will take you in their party if you just show up.

Camping: The Club has reserved a group site at Chestnut Creek Campground in Lansing, WV. You have to register for this event to stay at our group site. Check-in is on Friday night, 24 May, and check-out is on Monday, 27 May.  The Club WILL cover camping costs for all registrants. We currently have 20 tent spots reserved for the group camp site (this is a tent count, not person).

Transportation, etc:  You are responsible for arranging your own transportation, climbing partner(s), camping/climbing gear, and food (other than the club dinner).  Parking will be limited at the campsite, so please plan to carpool. 


Cancellation Policy: If you can no longer make the event, please change your registration as soon as possible. This allows people on the wait list to join. If you fail to show for an event and do not cancel within 48 hours, you will be considered a no show. Club members who have 3 or more no shows will not be able to register for future events for a period of one year whether it's due to failure to cancel or the person does not show up for the event at all.

PATC-MS Member Only policy: This event is for members of the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club-Mountaineering Section only, in good standing with liability waivers on file, unless otherwise stated.

This event will be strictly enforced by event leaders. Any person who shows up to an event that is not a member will not be able to participate in the event.

-You'll get a link to the Camping and Carpool sign-up list once you register.

-Only Club members will be covered for the Club dinner.  Guests can obviously attend but must pay their checks separately.  Thanks!

Reminder: Climbing is a dangerous sport and serious injury may occur.
