Trip Planning Questions

What is your current climbing level?

Will you bring a rope and/or trad gear?

Can you drive to/from Squamish area?

Login to Join BCMC Trips

You must login in order to sign up online for one of the BCMC Trips. If you don't have a BCMC membership account then please obtain one.  If you'd prefer to learn more before joining then please join as a 30-day Guest member.   Some trips are BCMC members only.

Participant Information

All participants must be able to lead-belay.  Preference *may* be given to those with experience leading "Trad" routes.  We'll decide which route(s) to climb depending on who signs up and what participants are interested in.

Those in the Vancouver area will meet at 7AM at St. David's Church parking lot near Hwy 1 and Taylor Way, West Vancouver.  Those closer to Squamish will meet at the Smoke Bluffs parking lot at 7:45am.  If you need a ride to the Church, please contact me.  We'll aim to return to the Smoke Bluffs parking lot by 1:15pm and arrive back in Vancouver about 2PM ... to hopefully avoid much of the late afternoon "rush hour" traffic.

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 :-)
