Our plan will be for a full day of moderate multi-pitch rock climbing in the Squamish area... probably at The Papoose Wall. Participants *must* be able to lead-belay and be comfortable seconding *Trad* climbers.  Preference may be given to those with moderate "Trad" leading experience.

We'll meet at 8AM at St. David's Church parking lot near Hwy 1 and Taylor Way, in West Vancouver.  If you need a ride to the church, please post a request in this trip's planning forum.  I imagine we'll arrive back in Vancouver about 7PM.

NOTE: this trip requires climbing teams of 2.

Emergency contact info: if you haven't added it yet, please log into the club website and click on: My Account > Edit Profile Information > Private Info and add it (note: 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: - I'll check the online weather forecast for where and when we're going on the evening before the trip... lately I've been using The Weather Network (hourly)... and if the forecast is 40% PoP or less then we'll most likely go.  Anything *above* 40% PoP and the trip will in most cases be cancelled.

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