BCMC Social Event (Doors/Beer@7pm)

Hobnails and Hemp Rope - Climbing Mountains Like it's 1916

- with Bryan Thompson

In July 2016, as part of the Bugaboo Spire Centennial Climb Project, four climbers from Ontario set out to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first ascent of Bugaboo Spire in Bugaboo Provincial Park, BC. Their goal was to camp and climb using only the gear, food and climbing equipment which Conrad Kain and his party used in 1916. The documentary film, "Hobnails and Hemp Rope" tells their story. Filmaker Greg Gransden, Photographer Ivan Petrov and Expedition Leader Bryan Thompson are touring the country as part of Canada 150 to share their experience.

We will give away a free one-year subscription to ROCK & ICE for the best-dressed 1916 style mountaineer at the event. Come dressed well! 

The Social Presentation will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, May 9th. The entrance door will open shortly before 7pm and the BCMC Social presentation is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.  Please note: you must be 19+ years old to attend and may be asked to sign-in at the door to ensure we don't exceed 135 people in the hall. Feel free to grab a drink at the Bar before the social starts.
