Itinerary:
The idea is that we go and climb at Grotto Weds evening. Assuming that they haven't fallen down / are about to fall down, I fancy His and Hers. If we do get 6 people, it would be handy to have someone who would be prepared to lead Grotto Falls. We will leave from the PetroCan gas station on Highway 1 about 4.30pm.
Required Items to Bring:
Headlamp, spare headlamp, spare batteries (you wouldn't believe it, but people do rock up for these night climbs having forgotten their headlamps), Ice tools, crampons, climbing boots, belay jacket, climbing gloves, belay gloves, harness, helmet, belay device, 2 locking carabiners, water, food, warm clothing, gas money if carpooling.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Hot drinks, extra gloves, food, a beer for afterwards.
