Participant Information

Objectives: Skaha Bluffs is quite a large park with a lot of options for easy, moderate and advanced climbers. It is mostly known as a sport climbing destination, but there are some opportunities for trad climbing as well. We will split into groups each day based on skill levels and what people want to climb.

Requirements: You should have some experience with outdoor climbing and be comfortable leading, lead belaying, setting up anchors and cleaning anchors. You must bring all of your personal rock climbing gear (helmet, harness, shoes, PAS, anchor, etc.) and a good head for safety. Ideally you have a rope, quick draws and are ready to have a lot of fun!

Transportation: Carpool from the GVA to Pentiction. I plan to head up Thursday evening after work, but you are welcome to come Friday and meet up with the group then. Leave Skaha on Monday, either first thing in the morning for an early return to Vancouver, or later in the day to accommodate some last minute climbs. 

Accommodation: I have booked three campsites at Lost Moose Campground for up to 18 people total. For those of you who've never been there, its a great campground in the hills above Skaha. There's clean bathrooms and hot showers included. Its about a 15 minute drive to the park from the camp site.

Other: Please remember to read through and answer the screening questions when you sign up. Keep an eye on the planning forum closer to the trip for carpooling arrangements and other planning info.
