The plan is to climb Bow Falls on Friday in memory of the late Brian Greenwood - the iconic Rockies climber who passed away on April 6. Bow Falls was first climbed by Brian Greenwood and Bugs McKeith in March 1973. Mid april can be hit or miss for this climb, but it has been a cold spring thus far. So fingers crossed. The climb itself is WI 3/4 depending on the chosen line, and is usually done in 3 or 4 pitches. We will be rappelling the route.
Required Items to Bring:
a gear list will be distributed to participants on thursday evening. Snowshoes or skis highly recommended for the approach.

How to Get There:
Carpool Departure Time:  
Carpool Location:   PetroCanada along Hwy#1 at cochrane turnoff

Everyone attending this event will be required to sign the ACC Waiver at the beginning of the event. Read the waiver carefully to ensure you fully understand it. If possible, please print and fill it out except for the signature fields before arriving at the event.

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.
