Expect a full day of crack and/or slab climbing on moderate routes in the Squamish area. There should be opportunities for both leading and top-roping... depending on route difficulty and people's skill levels. We'll most likely climb in one area, such as Lumberland Wall, that has several moderate routes. NOTE: when selecting participants, preference will be given to those who I know can safely lead-belay and have a 60m climbing rope they're willing to share. Also, I prefer an even number of climbers so I may add pairs of climbers from the Waiting List... beyond the initial number of 4 climbers. All participants must bring their personal climbing gear, including harness, belay device, locking biner, climbing shoes, and helmet. Also note... while the more experienced climbers are usually happy to share their knowledge, this is not a climbing course. We'll meet at 8:00 AM at St. David's Church parking lot at Hwy 1 and Taylor Way, West Vancouver. If you need a ride to the church, please post a request in this trip's planning forum. We'll aim to arrive back in Vancouver before 6:00 PM. Cancellation due to weather: - check the weather forecast for where we're going on the morning of the trip (Environment Canada - If the forecast is 40% PoP or less then we'll go. Anything *above* 40% PoP and the trip is automatically cancelled... *unless* the trip organizer contacts the group to say otherwise.
