Participant Information

Moderate Saturday rock climbing the Pillary/Area 44 north of Squamish (sport routes 5.7 to 5.11)

General Trip Plan:  This trip is for BCMC members with some experience sport climbing top rope and sport lead.  Each pair of climbers should have someone comfortable leading easy to moderate 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 PAS (personal anchor system) for securing yourself, a prussic for safe rappelling, sunscreen, plenty of water and snacks.

Where/When to Meet:  We'll meet at 10:00 am 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 by 7:00 pm.

Please self-organize car pooling to the church via the "Planning Forum" on top-left of this page.

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: 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. The same goes for air quality forecast of 6 or better (low to mederate risk). Anything above 40% PoP or 7+ air quality risk rating and the trip is automatically cancelled unless the trip organizer contacts the group to say otherwise. Please make sure to answer all "Questions for Participants"
