Tuesday May 9th 7:30pm ANZA Club

BCMC Social Event (Doors/Beer@7pm)

Hobnails and Hemp Rope - Climbing Mountains Like it's 1916 

- with Bryan Thompson

We will give away a free one-year subscription to ROCK & ICE for the best-dressed 1916 style mountaineer at the event. 

In July 2016, as part of the Bugaboo Spire Centennial Climb Project, four climbers from Ontario set out to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first ascent of Bugaboo Spire in Bugaboo Provincial Park, BC. Their goal was to camp and climb using only the gear, food and climbing equipment which Conrad Kain and his party used in 1916. The documentary film, "Hobnails and Hemp Rope" tells their story. Filmaker Greg Gransden, Photographer Ivan Petrov and Expedition Leader Bryan Thompson are touring the country as part of Canada 150 to share their experience.
