Participant Information

Max Number: Currently set to 4 but may increase further. So, add your name to the Waiting List.

General Trip Plan: I would like to practice trad climbing on 5.7 to 5.9- routes and top rope intermediate routes to work on technique for slab climbing and crack climbing. This trip is for BCMC members with some experience in single/multi-pitch climbing, plus have good lead-belay skills. Each pair of climbers will need at least one person that's comfortable leading multi-pitch routes. The route(s) will be decided depending on the skill level of participants and ability to lead mixed/trad routes.

Gear Requirements: All participants must bring their own personal climbing gear... including: harness, belay device, locking biner, climbing shoes, head lamp 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 10:30 am at the Squamish Adventure Centre parking lot off Hwy 99. We'll plan to get back to the cars by sunset.

Please self-organize car pooling to the Adventure Centre 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.
