I would be up for that big time! I am psyched to try Space Shot in a day as well and want to do some other classics like moonlight and prodigal as well. It would also be nice to possible share gear (I'll loan you my #2 camalots for spaceshot if I can borrow your tcus for moonlight) Count me in.

YES!!!
Count me in.
I haven't done Zion yet, but one of my partners and I were having Big Wall fantasies last week. I'll just have to see how the school shizzit works out.

Well, I don't know if I would call myself a seasoned wall veteran (rat) quite yet, but after climbing with Andrew (atg200) in March, I may know my way around the place a little. It depends on if I have a job by then and what kind of job it may be. I'm sure I could go up for a long weekend.

TRADitionally yours,

atg200 & addroids-When are you going down there? I was thinking about going the last week in March. If my roommate gets a job before then I may need a partner. What routes are you planning on doing?

wigglestick,

we should be getting there the evening of the 15th, and staying a week or so before moving on to moab. planning on doing swoop gimp, and trying to do spaceshot and moonlight buttress fast. i think wallhammer is going to be there as well, so the more the merrier.

Too bad. I have some friends coming into town to go skiing that weekend. So I don't think I can meet you down there. I am going to probably head down on the 25th so we will just miss each other. Swoop gimp looks awesome. Some friends of mine were working on a variation that goes left from the top of the 2nd (or 3rd) pitch while I was on Space Shot. Good luck.

Ooze, Nothing set in stone yet but I think we are planning on getting there on the 26th and staying through the 31st. It would be great to hook up and compare notes/exagerated stories with you and anybody else who shows up.

Edit: Oh, yea. I am a big wall gumby too. Sometimes I don't know a pin scar from a hole in the ground. But I am trying to fix that. Highly motivated as well. What routes are you hoping to do ooze?

Hey Stu,

I just talked to Brian today. I'm going to try and make it to Zion in a few weeks or so. He has some BIG plans, maybe we could get together for some fun in the sun.

Yeeeeahhhhh!!!!

Cheers mate, Ammon

I planned on soloing some Zion moderates the week of March 23-28. If anyone wants to split the workload drop an email!
