Participant Information

Last month it was fun climbing with kids at Murrin Park. Weather permitting, planning to do another trip on Aug 26 - this time at The Playground crag at Crumpit Woods.

Tess Egan and Jason Robinson - thanks a ton for developing The Playground crag.

We will be doing some fun kid friendly short climbs in 5.4-5.7 range. Here is a link with more information about the climbs at The Playground - 



If you have kid(s) who would like to climb and have climbing harness and helmet, you are welcome to join. Kid's climbing shoes is optional, sneakers will be fine for the climbs we will be doing. No prior climbing experience required. I will bring my rope and climbing gear.

Other items - snacks, water, sunscreen, hat

If you plan to meet directly at the crag at 9 am, here is the approach -

Turn right on the 99 towards the Apron parking lot and travel along the Mamquat FSR. Turn left at the obvious intersection and drive for 5 minutes. You'll see a boulder on the right (has a yellow sign sticking out of it), that is where you park. The bould is between the two crags.

I am flexible with the plan and open to other ideas as well. Please feel free to give me a call if you have any questions.
