Participant Information

Sport and/or trad climbing in or near Squamish. Often we'll go into the Smoke Bluffs... however depending on group size and experience, plus rock "dryness" conditions, we *may* go to the Apron for some "easy" (5.7-5.8) multi-pitch climbing Basically, plan-A is single pitch in the Bluffs and plan-B (if everyone wants to) is some easy multi-pitch routes on the Apron.

All participants must bring their personal climbing gear... including: harness, belay device, locking biner, climbing shoes, and helmet. Also highly recommended is a prussic for rappelling, a PAS (personal anchor system) for securing yourself, plenty of water and energy snacks.

Ropes & anchor material for this event are provided by participants and not by the club. If you have a full strength climbing rope and anchor material, please do bring it.

While the more experienced climbers are usually happy to share their knowledge, this is not a climbing course. Every participant *must* be able to belay and is expected to have some top roping experience (indoors or outdoors).

Meet at 10:00 am at St. David's Church parking lot at Hwy 1 and Taylor Way, West Vancouver. If you need a ride to the church, please post a request in this trip's planning forum.  We'll aim to arrive back in Vancouver about 7:00 pm.

Cancellation due to weather: -Check the weather on Tuesday morning (Environment Canada - weatheroffice.gc.ca). If the forecast for Squamish is 40% PoP or less then we'll go. Anything above 40% PoP and the trip is automatically cancelled.
