Participant Information

"Trad' style climbing with some mixed routes that include bolts.  There should be opportunities for both leading and top-roping depending skill levels.  We can decide on the climbing areas at the meet up parking lot at St. David's Church Saturday morning..

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 7.00 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.
