Participant Information


General Trip Plan:  this trip is for BCMC members with some experience multi-pitch climbing *AND* some experience slab climbing.  Each pair of climbers will need someone comfortable leading moderate "run out" slab pitches. The current plan is to climb a series of multi-pitch slab routes from the bottom of the Apron to the top of the "Upper Apron".

Update: there are now two lead-climbers on the list with experience on and willing to lead the run-out pitches.

Gear Requirements:  all participants must bring their own personal climbing gear... including: harness, belay device, locking biner, climbing shoes, and helmet (no helmet = no climbing).  Also highly recommended is a prussic for rappelling, a PAS (personal anchor system) for securing yourself, plenty of water and energy snacks.

Where/When to Meet:  we'll meet early at 7:00 am (to climb when it's cooler) at the St. David's Church parking lot located at Hwy 1 and Taylor Way, in West Vancouver.  Our plan will be to arrive back in Vancouver about 3:00 pm.

Emergency Contact Info:  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.

Potential 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.

Poor Weather Cancellation:  I'll check the weather forecast for where we're going the evening before we meet.  If the weather does NOT seem good enough for reasonably safe climbing then I will announce to all participants that the trip is cancelled.
