Participant Information

NEW UDATE
We're planning to climb moderate bolted/sport routes in the Parking Lot area (includes Foundation Wall) of Cheakamus Canyon.

***UPDATE***
Marlaina Rhymer will be co-organizing this trip and inviting some new climbers to join her for an introduction to rock climbing. 
If interested, please email her at marlaina.rhymer @ gmail.com or call/text her at 604 928 5812 to let her know in advance.

Sport and/or trad with opportunities for both leading and top-rope climbing in or near Squamish. Most often we'll go to the Smoke Bluffs... however depending on group size and experience, plus rock "dryness" conditions, we may go to another crag in the Squamish area.

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 should be able to lead-belay and is expected to have *at least* some top roping experience (indoors and/or outdoors).

Meet at 9:00 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 5:00 pm.

Emergency contact info: please log in, click on: My Account > Edit Profile Information > Private Info and add it (you'll need to re-enter your password).  Your emergency contact info will be stored *privately* and made available to those organizing trips *you* choose to attend.

Cancellation due to weather: - check the weather forecast for where we're going on the morning of the trip (Environment Canada - weatheroffice.gc.ca). If the forecast is 40% PoP or less then we'll go. Anything *above* 40% PoP and the trip is automatically cancelled... *unless* the trip organizer contacts the group to say otherwise.

NOTE: if you've answered the trip screening questions for one of my recent outings then you don't need to re-answer them... unless the answers have changed :-)
