Participant Information

Prerequisites:  only join this trip if you have your own "Trad" climbing gear (including rope), have previous crack climbing experience, have good belay skills for Top-Rope and Lead climbers, and generally have fun on moderate climbing routes.

Meeting Time:  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.  We'll plan our day to arrive back in Vancouver before 7:00 pm.

Cost Sharing:  please bring $10 for your driver to help with cost sharing for carpooling, thank you :-)

Basic Gear:  all participants must bring their personal climbing gear... including: harness, belay device, locking biner, climbing shoes, and (very important!) helmet. Also highly recommended is a prussic for rappelling, a PAS (personal anchor system) for securing yourself, plenty of water and energy snacks.

Shared Gear:  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.

Knowledge:  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).

Emergency Info:  please make sure your Emergency Contact info has been added to your BCMC account.  You can do this by logging into bcmc.ca then click on: My Account (top of page)... then click on Edit Emergency Contact (top-left column).  Re-enter your password to complete the process.  Your emergency contact info will be stored *privately* and only be available to those organizing events that *you* join online.

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:  check the weather forecast for where we're going on the morning of the trip (I prefer wunderground.com). If the forecast is 40% PoP or less then usually we'll go.
