This weekend: Rock Climbing in Okutama


Locations:

1. Koesawa Buttress  near Hatonosu station
Need decent climbers to lead as there are few places to use top rope. Single pitch ok for beginners.
Most routes are 3 or 4 pitches so  not suitable for beginners - they can do the first part and  come back down.

2. River cliffs and rocks near Hatonosu station
Looks good but depends on access - maybe ok for beginners.

3. Easy rock outcrop near Okutama station
Ok for beginners.

Should have your own harness and boots but you can borrow or try climbing in other footwear.

 Will go saturday and again sunday.

Saturday
3 places to  try out but one is a bit difficult for beginners unless you are confident.
better to bring helmet, climbing shoes and harness (if you borrow you are limited to some routes and have to wait longer).
You can also join for the hike and sightseeing (*hike in beautiful location)

Any climbers try and bring quickdraws please.
