Tour of the Dirty South 2010 - Rock Town, HP40, Red River and Lilly

OP will be again offering; The Tour of the Dirty South

This can be taken as a class too, 1 credit hour!

The southern climbing and bouldering trip or(Tour of the Dirty South) is December 26th- January 2. This is a one week long climbers dream. By the end of the week you will have been to Rock town Georgia, Lilly Boulders Tennessee , and last but not least  Horse Pins 40 Alabama at stop on the Triple Crown Series. All of these places are world class climbing destinations and have plenty of climbing for beginners to advanced climbers, whether your touching real rock for the first time or a V12 pulling mutant, you will find something to test your grip on.  This trip is full of great climbing, good people, and new experiences.

We travel by school van, with a box trailer for all of our gear, meaning we camp in style.  We spend the days climbing, nights by the fire, and crash in tents for a well earned rest.  We cook breakfasts and dinners as a group, eat as a group, all of a menu picked and planned by our experienced and dedicated staff.  If you have ever been on a HCOP trip, you know we don't mess around when it comes to food.  We plan and prepare hearty meals, that we refuel you for future sends.  Winter Bouldering? Cold? Don't worry about the cold, in only make the friction that much better! We also bring trick of the trade with us, we have more then one way to stay warm while climbing, and more then enough extra sleeping bags to keep you toasty at night.

There is no reason why you should miss this trip.  Even our "Little Justin", will be attending this trip again, only this time he will be a assistant trip leader, bringing with him the lessons learned from last years tour.

So don't miss this opportunity to see some of what the South has to offer in this non-stop climbing extravaganza.
