Participant Information

Expect a full day of climbing on both sport and trad climbs.  It will work better if there is an even number and people are paired and have objectives in mind before we leave.  Each pair will have all climbing gear including rope and protection, a guide book or print out and a list of areas and climbs they would like to visit.  Information and a free guide is available on the internet.  

We''ll plan to leave Vancouver at 6:00am, stop for coffee and breakfast in Bellingham, then start climbing around 830am.   Have lunch at the crag and then possibly stop for dinner in the evening before we cross the border. 

 

I have been to Mount Erie once many years ago and remember it as an idyllic spot overlooking Puget sound with outstanding climbs.  I have the most recent guide book for the area.

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.

All participants must be able to safely belay and have some experience leading.  Everyone will be encouraged to lead.  

NOTE WE WILL BE CROSSING THE BORDER SO ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST HAVE VALID AND UP TO DATE DOCUMENTION TO ENTER THE USA.

If not sure if this is the trip for you please email me.
