Red River Gorge Climbing Trip

This weekend Outdoor Pursuits will be heading to Red River Gorge for some awesome climbing in Kentucky. We will be leaving from the Student Center on Friday September 28th at 10am (if you have class on Friday we can get you an excuse letter so you can get out of class) and will be back on Sunday September 30th. All gear will be provided but if you have your own shoes, harness, and camping equipment you should bring it. It will be cold this weekend so make sure to dress warm. The trip is $50 but this does not include meals, so make sure you bring food and snacks for the weekend and some extra money for if we stop somewhere on the way down and back. There is a MANDATORY meeting Thursday September 27th at 7pm at the rock wall. If you are planning on attending this weekend you MUST COME TO THIS MEETING.
