Participant Information

TRIP IS FULL (max 6 participants)

The plan will be to spend the day at the AMO Wall, near Shannon Falls, where there are lots of relatively easy, well-bolted, slab routes to climb (no "trad").  There will be opportunities for both leading and top-roping... depending skill levels.  Note: this is a great area to get more experience leading on slab routes.

We'll meet at 8:00 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.  Since it's Father's Day, we'll plan our day to arrive back in Vancouver by 4:30 pm.

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 safely belay and is expected to have *at least* some top roping experience (indoors and/or outdoors).  If someone would like to review the basic ways of setting up a SERENE 2-bolt anchor station, then I'm willing to spend an hour doing that... let me know in advance please.

EMERGENCY CONTACT: please make sure your Emergency Contact info has been added to your web-account profile.  You can do this by logging into the bcmc.ca website, click on: My Account (top of page)... then click on Edit Emergency Contact (top-left column).  Please re-enter your password to complete the process.  Your emergency contact info is stored *privately* and only made available to those organizing trips *you* choose to attend.

MEDICAL ISSUES: any info that should be shared with the organizer(s), please send an email and/or phone ASAP.  For example, if you are very allergic to bee/wasp bites, or you are taking medication that could be vital information to First Aid Responders.  Anything you choose to share with me will remain private.

 

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 :-)
