We will meet at St. David's church and drive to the Chek Canyon in Squamish. The plan is to try a few climbs in the North / Central / South Chek area (TBD) - this area is set up for sport climbing (there may be opportunity for someone who only top ropes to join by climbing routes with an anchor set up by others in the group).

The focus will be on easier climbs - I'll lead up to 5.10a and top rope a bit harder than that.

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 are lead climbing)
  • Rope (if you have one)
  • Water
  • Lunch
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug Spray

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

The weather is looking decent all week, with a small chance of showers on Sunday. Since the weather tends to be fickle, I will monitor throughout the week to see if it gets better or worse. If there is rain, we may cancel.
