Participant Information

Expect a day of crack and slab climbing on easy-to-moderate routes at either the Burger & Fries Wall or the Funarama Wall.  There should be opportunities for both leading and top-roping... depending skill levels.  Preference will be given to those who recently finished one of the three BCMC Intro to Outdoor Rock Climbing courses... or helped organize them... and have a 60m climbing rope they're willing to share.

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) for securing yourself, plenty of 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.

We'll meet a bit earlier... at 7:30 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 aim to arrive back in Vancouver before 6:00 pm.

Emergency contact info: please log in, click on: My Account > Edit Profile Information > Private Info and add it (you'll need to re-enter your password).  Your emergency contact info will be stored *privately* and made available to those organizing trips *you* choose to attend.

Cancellation due to weather: - check the weather forecast for where we're going on the morning of the trip (Environment Canada - weatheroffice.gc.ca). If the forecast is 40% PoP or less then we'll go. Anything *above* 40% PoP and the trip is automatically cancelled... *unless* the trip organizer contacts the group to say otherwise.

NOTE: if you've answered the trip screening questions for one of my *recent* outings then you don't need to re-answer them... unless the answers have changed :-)
