Climbers Outing: Devil's Lake (public)

Join Chicago Mountaineering Club at Devil's Lake for our monthly public climbing outings

Saturday, August 14, 2021 through Sunday, August 15, 2021
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM (Central Standard Time)

Climbers Outing: Devil's Lake (public)

NOTE: CMC may cancel public outings and refund all paying registrants no later than 1 week before the scheduled event if we are not able to confirm Rope Leaders will be present. Please make sure to check your email before leaving, if an outing is cancelled the campground will be closed to the public for that weekend.

These outings are open to all. Join us at our private campground just outside Devil’s Lake State Park. Camping is open to anyone climbing with the club and costs only $20/person for the whole weekend. Many people arrive on Friday evening, but some do come up early Saturday morning (please arrive by 8:30am to make the morning meeting).

A typical CMC outing at Devil’s Lake is a gathering of both members and non-members. Everyone meets at the campsite at 9am for the morning meeting, which covers the inherent risks of outdoor climbing, and any other club announcements. This is followed by an introduction of the Rope Leaders, and where the day’s climbing parties will be headed. Everyone will then drive over to the parking lot nearest to the climb and hike up to the bluffs. Multiple top-ropes are usually fixed based on the number of people climbing. There are no bolted routes at Devil’s Lake. Rope Leaders will review all top-rope anchors. And then the climbing begins! It is not unusual to have 6-10 ropes setup for each party.

*** If you are applying to become a member of the CMC, try to remember the dates of the outings you attend and the names of the Rope Leaders you climb with (only one per day or weekend is fine). We keep track too but if you have it the application is quicker and easier to complete. ***
