Meeting at the Smoke Bluffs parking lot at 9am then picking out a crag to fit the group. I'll set up some top ropes and we can hang out and climb for a few hours before and after lunch and depending how smoothly that goes we could move to a different crag mid-day. The group size is small but that's if I'm the only person who has an intermediate or advanced level of experience. If we get another experienced person to join us, I wouldn't mind having a group size of 9. Visiting the Howe Sound Brew Pub might be nice for dinner too. By the way, I live in Squamish so I won't be in any carpools to get to Squamish but I would suggest the St.David's United Church as a meeting place for people who live in the greater Vancouver area. I'll try to keep everyone in touch with eachother via e-mail to make that part easier to coordinate for you folks.

Required Items to Bring:
Helmet, harness, climbing shoes, lunch, water for the day (I think a lot of water so for a sunny hot day I'd go with 2L).
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Chalk bag, sun screen, bug screen, sun glasses, a good lunch, camera, weather appropriate clothing.

I expect a low key day. You won't need almost any experience besides being able to top rope safely.
