Drydooling season is upon us, and ice will be here before we know it! The Canmore Bouldering Cave is the only gym in the area that allows you to use you outdoor ice tools on the bouldering walls. You may be able to dangle from dry ice tools at certain gyms, but there's really no substitute for your actual ice tools in hand! With all sorts of roof problems, and overhanging bouldering walls, this place is the perfect venue for working on the strength and techniques that you'll need to send you projects this winter. In particular, if you've wanted to practice some of the more advanced movements of the horizontal m-climbing world, like figure 4's and 9's, this gym provides close-to-ground features (with a padded floor) that make for the perfect place to practice this skill safely. Some additional perks are that you are free to set you own routes here (or just add a bolt or hold for a particular training exercise), and you can plug your phone/mp3 player into the stereo and listen to your own music! It's a rock climbing bouldering gym, too, so if that's more your style, do that! Check out the website at ww
Required Items to Bring:
Rock climbing shoes (even if you're dry tooling - no crampons allowed), $15 cash for admission (unless you pay online)

Recommended Items to Bring:
Ice Tools, thin gloves (BD torque or golf gloves), chalk bag if you'll want to boulder without ice tools. STOKE!!!

You'll need to sign a waiver and pay admission before climbing. Either (or both) can (preferably) be done on the website ( rop-in.html) or you can pay in person at the gym, and sign a paper waiver there too. If you decide to pay at the gym, I would recommend having exact change as there's no telling if the right change will be in the cash box when we arrive. The drop-in admission fee is $15 for Thursdays (and all other days except Wednesday, when it's $10).This is a community-run venue, and there is no permanent staff. I'm a member and will try my best to provide help with the payment, waiver, etc if anyone needs it.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

*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.
