Participant Information

I'd love to have a casual day rock climbing in the Bluffs.  Lets meet in the Smoke Bluffs parking lot at 2:30 and climb until sunset.  I am happy to climb on lead or top rope.  

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.

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.

I'll be driving from Vancouver (leaving at 1), i will have space in my car for 4.   Please post in the trip forum to organize car-pooling.  If you would like a ride, please post in the trip forum or send me a text message.

This will be weather dependent
