Participant Information

General Trip Plan:  this trip has been **UPDATED** and will now be for any BCMC members with experience "trad" rock climbing and have good lead-belay skills.

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 at 10:00 am at the St. David's Church parking lot located near Hwy 1 and Taylor Way, in West Vancouver.  I expect we'll be in Squamish by 11am.  Our plan will be to finish in time to leave Squamish about 5pm and arrive back in West Vancouver about 6:00 pm, hopefully allowing us to miss most of the after-work traffic congestion.

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.
