Participant Information

"Trad' style climbing with some mixed routes that include bolts.  There should be opportunities for both leading and top-roping depending skill levels.  We can decide on the climbing areas at the meet up parking lot at St. David's Church Saturday morning.

It will be a busy at Squamish this weekend and we planned to leave early and can head back earlier around 3 pm depending on the group.

All participants must bring their personal climbing gear including: harness, belay device, locking biner, climbing shoes, and helmet. Also highly recommended is a prussic for rappelling, a PAS (personal anchor system) for securing yourself, plenty of water and energy snacks.

Ropes & anchor material for this event are provided by participants and not by the club. If you have a full strength climbing rope and anchor material, please do bring it.

While the more experienced climbers are usually happy to share their knowledge, this is not a climbing course. Every participant should be able to lead-belay and is expected to have *at least* some top roping experience (indoors and/or outdoors).

Meet at 6:45  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 7.00 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.
