Participant Information

7am meeting at the church.

We will climb Mt. Harvey or Mt. Brunswick or Backside of The Chief -- still not decided. Our objectives are chosen for their beauty and solitude rather than ease of access. Therefore, no apron, and potentially a long hike in. 

This is not a climbing course. Every participant must be able to lead-belay and must be able to second 5.11 routes. 


Meeting: 7:00am, parking lot of St. David's United Church at Taylor Way & Hwy 1

You can coordinate rides to the meeting place on the planning forum:

All participants must bring their personal climbing gear (harness, belay device, locking biner, climbing shoes) and a headlamp (we may be returning to the parking lot after dark). Also highly recommended is a helmet, prussik for rappelling, water, and 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.
