We'll be climbing Mother's Day Buttress on
Cascade. There is a 30 min 3rd class scrambling
approach, 8 pitches of 5.6 trad climbing
(bolted anchors), and a descent that is mostly
a trail but includes some short sections of 3rd
class down-climbing and a rappel. Participants
must be competent at belaying a leader, and
comfortable moving over moderate scrambling
terrain. While not required to lead,
participants should be able to comfortably
climb up to 5.7 outdoors and be on the move for
4-7 hours. A mix of relative beginners and
more experienced participants are welcome to
join. I can lead a team of 3, and if another
trad leader joins the trip we can add a second
rope team. I've climbed the route before, so
the second leader won't need to worry too much
about route-finding, but should be competent &
confident at the grade. If I haven't climbed
with you recently, please send a description of
your experience level & abilities including
relevant climbs you have been on in the past
and whether you are interested in leading or
Required Items to Bring:
Climbing gear (can discuss in detail with
selected participants), and a backpack you are
comfortable climbing with. We won't be
returning to the start of the climb, so
everything you bring is coming up & over with
us - choose wisely!
We'll finalize rope teams, cars, and start time
Saturday evening at the Rock Rage party. Feel
free to sign up anytime, but I won't be moving
participants over to the trip until at least
1st. Participants are pre-screened & selected
based on their ability to contribute to a fun &
safe day out, not on the order of the wait-list
(i.e. this trip is not first come, first on).
*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Calgary Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
