More adventures in WV & SW PA
As we are set to embark on another long weekend trip, here’s a very belated post about our WV & PA adventures from the last long weekend.
For Memorial Day weekend, some of us spent 1 1/2 days at Coopers, a day at Coll’s, and a day at a new-to-us spot, Ohiopyle. By the time we got to Ohiopyle we were pretty exhausted, but we plan to return this weekend!
Before the photos, some good news. Our friends at Coll’s Cove are in the process of securing the cabin and surroundings where the parking area is currently for a campground. While they had hoped to have this ready for 4th of July weekend, the owners decided that some renovations would be needed before renting it out. Follow them on Facebook for more updates! And for now, click here for a map depicting how to pay for parking ($5 per car).
Okay, now here are some of Shane’s photos from the weekend:
We started off at Coopers, where General Max sent Beginning of the End (V9) on Friday. A bunch of things were sent by various people on Saturday, but I can’t remember exact details.
After climbing at Coll’s on Sunday (where Shane displaced Rattle Battle V7 and plenty of other climbing occurred), the PA crew took us on some crazy, dusty back roads to the Blue Hole, a place that looked like it belonged in some tropical paradise. The guys all jumped in and promptly swam out while the ladies all remained warm(ish) and dry.
Then we went even further down the back roads, had a little bit of a dance party, and then walked out to an overlook.
On Monday, the PA crew took us to Ohiopyle. I had been there before for camping, hiking, and rafting, but never climbing. Turns out there are a good amount of boulders there, some pretty high.
And now, back again this weekend!
