Held every year on Labor Day Weekend, the Luau is only partly about climbing. It is also about relaxed camp life and luxurious wilderness dining made possible by pack animals and dedicated cooks. Guests and children are welcome. The fee is $30 per person, which covers two breakfasts and two dinners. Participants are also requested to share a few jokes around the campfire, and to bring happy hour treats and your own drinks.

This year's luau will be September 1-4 at an undisclosed location.

To sign up, go here.

The plan for this year’s Luau is a little different from previous years. We have located a site in the Central Cascades with access to a real Climb Sunday. We will provide Saturday and Sunday Dinner, Sunday and Monday Breakfast.

However, the Closure and the ban on campfires will change things a bit.

Menu:

Saturday Dinner:
The plan is to do a fish based Gumbo and rice with a vegetarian sausage. The fish and shrimp go in last so the vegetarians can have theirs without the fish. There will also be vegetarian patties.

Sunday Breakfast:
Climber’s breakfast and standard fare.

Sunday Dinner:
Nacho/Burrito Bar with the meat and beans cooked separately.

Monday Breakfast:
Cowboy style Breakfast Burritos: All the leftover happy hour treats, hash browns, scrambled eggs.

Participants to supply: Your own Lunches, Trail food, Snacks, Drinks and Libation (Booze)

Requirements:
Bring a good joke, Happy hour treats and a willingness to pitch in and help around the camp.

After you have signed up through the website, please contact Byron with dietary restrictions or special requests.
