Event Information


Hello Mountaineers,


On behalf of HMC, we are stoked to invite you to Welcome Weekend at Devil's Lake! If you're looking to join us for the weekend camping aspect of this trip, please head over to the RecHub event titled "HMC Welcome Weekend - Camping Signup." If you'd rather join us strictly for the climbing and cookout on Saturday, September 23rd, stay tuned!


The itinerary for the day trip is as follows:

We will be meeting at Memorial Union Circle at 7:30 AM, pack up the cars, and leave no later than 7:45 AM to make our way over to Devil's Lake. There, we will meet the rest of the crew at Misery Rocks, have a parking lot talk, and head on up to the crag. After a full and glorious day of climbing, the entire group will head over to the South Shore for a cookout -- think (beyond or meat) burgers, brats, chips, fruit, and all that jazz.
