First choice is to head to Cowbell Crag, with a backup of Lake Louise. This will be a chance to practice/learn about placing + cleaming gear for trad climbing, mock-lead and lead pitches depending on your experience. If you're not working on trad, you can also come & practice general climbing & rope management skills. I'll be looking to build a group with a variety of experience - both beginners and more experienced. We will tailor activities to the interest of the participants. This will be single-pitch climbing, but may include long pitches. We will also potentially set up top ropes.
Required Items to Bring:
minimum: harness, climbing shoes, helmet, belay device, personal anchor (preferably 2).

Recommended Items to Bring:
rock protection, ropes, anchor gear
