Itinerary:
I am co-leading this trip with Lisa Hunka. We will plan to spend a long weekend climbing in the Kootenays! Expecting opportunities for all levels of climbing practice - we will look to build a group with a mix of abilities from beginner to advanced. Should be some opportunities for traditional climbing practice. The entire trip will likely run from the evening of July 20 (driving down) through the evening of July 23/24. Folks CAN join or leave at slightly different times. When you register, be sure to indicate which/for how many days you can join and we will look at coordinating carpools appropriately. Also please indicate if you have/need a tent and/or cooking gear.
