Participant Information

St Vitus' Dance (5.9) route topo

We will pair up for multi-pitch climbing.  Everyone should have trad-leading, gear-seconding and lead-belaying experience. Also, good station building and rope management skills are very important.  If in doubt, please contact me to discuss it.

All participants must bring their own climbing gear, i.e. harness, belay device, locking biner, personal anchor tether, climbing shoes and helmet. Also, highly recommended is a prussic, lunch, water, and snacks. Ropes & anchor material for this event are provided by the participants, as well as an appropriate lead rack, slings and QDs for multi-pitching.

While the more experienced climbers are usually happy to share their knowledge, this is not a climbing course.

The forecast is for HOT sunny weather so I'd like to *leave* the church parking lot at 7:30 AM so we can climb when it's cooler and be finished by early afternoon... please arrive 10 minutes early.  St David's Church is located near Hwy 1 and Taylor Way in West Vancouver.  I expect we'll return to the church before 4:00 pm so we can miss most of the after-work traffic.

Cancellation due to weather: - I will check a few online weather forecast sites 24hrs before the meetup time. If the "common" forecast of probability for precipitation in the Squamish area is 40% or more then the trip will be cancelled.  You can expect an email notifying you of the cancellation... but if in doubt you can email the organizer.
