Participant Information

Easy to moderate rock climbing on top-rope routes at Juniper Point in Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver (5.6 to 5.11a)

General Trip Plan:  It's supposed to be sunny and dry on Monday. Let's get on the rock after this week's rain. :)
Juniper Point in Lighthouse Park is a fast drying area with S-SW exposure right by the ocean. This crag has shorter routes, no more than gym height, but offers a good variety of difficulty.
See here for topo and route info: http://projectclimb.com/src/climbing/crag.aspx?c=AC668C2EBA315913AE5D&tb=tp

his trip is for BCMC members with some experience climbing top rope. Each pair of climbers should have someone comfortable setting up top-rope anchors. I have seen a few people climb trad at this crag but there are no established trad routes.

The number of participants is limited as it is a smaller crag with only establised 8 routes and 5 anchors. I may increase a bit it depending on the car pooling situation.

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 are 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 early at 11:00 am at the St David's United Church parking lot located at Highway 1 & Taylor Way, in West Vancouver.

Please self-organize car pooling to the meeting spot 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: You can find the weather forecast for where we're going at TWN [http://www.theweathernetwork.com/ca/outdoors/parks/cabc2949]. This trip will be cancelled if the forecast is for more than 40% POP. If cancelled, we may go indoor climbing at Cliffhanger Climbing Gym in Vancouver instead.
