Participant Information

IMPORTANT: The meeting time is 4.30 as it's getting darker earlier these days.

Evening climbing in Smoke Bluffs, or other Squamish climbing area.

Cancellation due to Weather: If PoP for Squamish on Environment Canada's website (https://weather.gc.ca/city/pages/bc-50_metric_e.html) remains over 30% on Wednesday morning, the trip might be cancelled. Final decision will be made on Wednesday morning. 

While I'm sure the more experienced climbers will be happy to share their knowledge, this is not a climbing course. Every participant must be able to belay and is expected to have some top roping experience (indoors or outdoors). We will find an area with a variety of grades that match the participants' preference.

Meeting: 4:30 PM, parking lot of St. David's United Church at Taylor Way & Hwy 1
Departure: 4:40 PM sharp
We climb until sunset 

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 will 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.
