Trip Planning Questions

1) Do you have a preference, or on the contrary a strong dislike, for any of the suggested destinations?

2) Do you lead trad, sport or both? What level?

3) Will you bring a rope, anchor material and lead gear?

4) If you plan to drive, how many additional people can you take and where will you be driving from/through?

If you require a ride, where do you live? This will help with organizing carpooling.

Participant Information

Murrin Park, the Apron, the Malamute, Smoke Bluffs or Cheakamus Canyon: whatever the group chooses, as long as we take advantage of the great sun out there!! I can sport lead to 5.10a and can second on trad. We'll choose routes according to the skills of participants so please make sure to answer the 'Questions for Participants'.

We'll meet at St. David's Church, 1525 Taylor Way to depart at 8:30 am and plan on coming back to Vancouver around 7:00 pm at the latest.

 All participants must bring their personal climbing gear, including: harness, belay device, locking biner, climbing shoes, and helmet. Also highly recommended is a prussic for rappelling, a PAS (personal anchor system) to secure yourself, sunscreen, water and energy snacks.

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.

While the more experienced climbers are usually happy to share their knowledge, this is not a climbing course. Every participant should be able to lead-belay and is expected to have top-roping experience (indoors and/or outdoors).

Poor Weather Cancellation: The weather looks gorgeous (sunny, high 19) but for reference the weather forecast for Squamish is at weather.gc.ca/city/pages/bc-50_metric_e.html. The trip is maintained as long as the forecast is 40% PoP or less.
