BCMC Social Event

Tuesday December 13th 7:30pm ANZA Club

BCMC Social Event (Doors/Beer@7pm)

Stories from Top 50 Climbs in the
Bugaboos, North Cascades and Enchantments

- by Daphne Huang and Bertin Wong 

When your partner thinks it would be a good idea to make your first alpine climb, first time climbing steep snow EVER a linkup of all five towers in Liberty Bell and makes you downclimb diedre to improve your down scrambling skills, you know you have more adventures ahead of you. 

Join the BCMC to hear how two strangers test not only their physical abilities, but also the limits of their new found friendship through a summer of alpine climbing across the Pacific Northwest and BC.


The Social Presentation will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, December 13th 2016. The entrance door will open shortly after 7pm and the BCMC Social event is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.  Please note: you must be 19+ years old to attend and may be asked to sign-in at the door to ensure we don't exceed 135 people in the hall. Feel free to grab a drink downstairs before the social starts.
