Participant Information

Expect a full day of crack and/or slab climbing on moderate routes in the Squamish area.  There should be opportunities for both leading and top-roping... depending on route difficulty and people's skill levels.  We'll most likely climb in one area, such as Lumberland Wall (photo above), that has several moderate routes.  

NOTE: when selecting participants, preference will be given to those who I know can safely lead-belay and have a 60m climbing rope they're willing to share.  Also, I prefer an even number of climbers so I may add pairs of climbers from the Waiting List... beyond the initial number of 6 climbers.

All participants must bring their personal climbing gear, including harness, belay device, locking biner, climbing shoes, and helmet.  The club supplies NO equipment for climbing trips.  Also note... while the more experienced climbers are usually happy to share their knowledge, this is not a climbing course.

We'll meet at 9:00 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.

And 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 :-)
