Participant Information

Max Number: Currently set to 4 but may increase to 6 or 8 so add your name to the Waiting List.

General Trip Plan: This trip is for BCMC members with some experience in multi-pitch climbing, plus have good lead-belay skills. Each pair of climbers will need at least one person that's comfortable leading moderate multi-pitch routes. The route(s) will be decided depending on the skill level of participants and ability to lead sport or mixed/trad routes. One option is the 3-pitch 5.9 Star Chek route (bolted). We won't be doing routes with a long hike (30+ mins) for the approach.

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, sunscreen and energy snacks.

Where/When to Meet: Meeting at 9:00 am at the St. David's Church parking lot located near Hwy 1 and Taylor Way, in West Vancouver. We'll plan our day to arrive back in Vancouver before 7:30 pm.

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

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.
