We will meet at St. David's church and drive to the Smoke Bluffs in Squamish. The plan is to set up a couple of ropes at the usual hangouts (Burgers and Fries, Neat and Cool, etc.). Expect top roping, but if there are experienced lead climbers joining, we can pair you up. We will try to hit a patio when we are done for the day.

Gear List:

  • Helmet (mandatory)
  • Harness
  • Belay device
  • Anchor material
  • Climbing shoes
  • Draws (if you want to lead climb)
  • Rope (if you have one)
  • Water
  • Lunch
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug Spray

I'll bring a copy of Squamish Select and a first aid kit.

Shannon's puns were lacklustre last weekend, so I'm really looking for the group to step up on the pun game. Otherwise, you will be PUNished by my bad jokes, and you don't want that.

The weather is looking hot and sunny all week, so expecting the craig to be dry. If there is rain, we might push the event to Sunday or Monday
