Itinerary:
The Real Outdoor Climbing Knowledge Introductory Training (ROCK IT) program is for all people new to rock climbing or for people who need a refresher from scratch. No previous experience in any climbing activity is required. ROCK IT is not a training program for your physical strength, but we will set you up with the technical knowledge necessary to take part on other Section trips posted on the trip schedule throughout the summer like the weekly Rock Rage, as well as other ACC day and weekend trips. The ultimate goal of the program is to take participants from the beginner level to self sufficient climbers who can climb on their own and be safe and competent climbing partners. All of the sessions will be posted on the club calendar, so keep an eye out for them.

The Third Session is in the city and will be focused on setting- up and cleaning anchors, transitioning over to rappelling, as well as rappelling itself (aka setting and cleaning an anchor) We will also try to answer any questions you might have regarding any other related skills/problems. Preference will be given to participants who have attended the previous two sessions.

Participants will have to demonstrate the skills covered in sessions 1-3 (tying in, belaying, setting an anchor, rappelling etc.) in order to attend outdoor sessions.

Required Items to Bring:
As this one session is held in the city, no rock climbing shoes and helmet are necessary, but still bring your harness, belay/rappel device, anchor package (lockers/biners and sling), self belay sling, prussic cord/hollow block, rope, appropriate clothing.

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.
