Login to Join BCMC Trips

You must login in order to sign up online for one of the BCMC Trips. If you don't have a BCMC membership account then please obtain one.  If you'd prefer to learn more before joining then please join as a 30-day Guest member.   Some trips are BCMC members only.

Participant Information

All participants must be able to lead-belay and be comfortable seconding.  Preference will be given to those with at least some experience leading multi-pitch.  We'll decide routes depending on who signs up and what participants are interested in climbing.  The plan is to climb multi-pitch routes on the Squamish Apron in the 5.8-10a range.

Let's meet early so most of our climbing will be completed *before* the afternoon sun reaches and heats up the Apron.  With that in mind, I'd like to meet at 7AM at St. David's Church parking lot near Hwy 1 and Taylor Way, West Vancouver (7:45 at the Apron parking lot).  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 a little after 3PM to hopefully miss most of the late afternoon post-business hours traffic.

Emergency contact info: if you haven't added it yet, please log into the club website and click on: My Account > Edit Profile Information > Private Info and add it (note: 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: - I'll check the online weather forecast for where and when we're going on the evening before the trip.  Anything *above* 40% PoP and the trip will in most cases be cancelled.

NOTE: if you've answered my trip screening questions for one of my *recent* outings then you don't need to re-answer them... unless the answers have changed :-)
