Participant Information

Sport climbing in Chek Canyon, North of Squamish. Near the end of the day, we may try and check Star Chek, see if the morning masses have all gone through. Or else, we'll go swim in Brohm Lake! (Bring your bathing suit, just in case!)

It's ok if you don't lead but you'll need to know how to lead belay. We'll try to have a leader per pair.

All participants must bring their personal climbing gear, including: harness, belay device, locking biners, climbing shoes, and helmet + a personal anchor system (PAS) is recommended. We'll need at least one rope, one set of 12-15 quick draws and one anchor system per pair.

Don't forget sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, plenty of water and snacks.

While the more experienced climbers are usually happy to share their knowledge, this is not a climbing course.

We'll meet at 7:30 am at the 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 around 7:00 pm (always pending traffic...)

Emergency contact info: please log in, click on: My Account > Edit Emergency Contact and add a contact person (you'll need to re-enter your password).  Your emergency contact info will be stored *privately* and made available only to organizers of trips you joined.

Cancellation due to weather: check the weather forecast for where we're going on the morning of the trip (Environment Canada: weather.gc.ca/city/pages/bc-50_metric_e.html). 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.
