Cowbell crag is an older traditional/mixed climbing crag in the highwood pass. While there are some great routes, a lot of the hardware needs replacing and there may not be anchors at the top of climbs. We want to do some climbing at Cowbell, but also replace some of the old hardware and ensure there are some good anchors at the top. Anyone who attends MUST be able to either lead or second a gear climb and rappel. Preference will be given to those who can lead on gear. This won't be a traditional cragging day and you should expect to spend some time hanging from ropes cleaning up routes, drilling etc. That being said, there are supposedly some great gear routes back here! We will be at Cowbell crag at 9:45, or at canoe meadows for the carpool at 9
Required Items to Bring:
Sense of adventure! Multi-pitch gear. Helmet

Recommended Items to Bring:
Any bolting equipment you might have. Trad rack.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   Crag directions are in Sport Climbing in the Canadian Rockies. Feel free to email me for directions if you don't have the book.  

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. 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).
The Calgary Section of the Alpine Club of Canada is a not for profit / flow through course and trip provider. We organize courses and trips based on member demand and divide any costs that we incur between event attendees. In other words, we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
