Itinerary:
Let's go clean off those dirty cracks! If you don't know it, Cowbell Crag is a lovely cliff full of inviting cracks just north of the HWY 40/940 junction. While the approach is about 5 minutes, this site is nonetheless usually peaceful with the main traffic on the road being the occasional motorcycle. We can set up some TRs and you can practice climbing, gear placement, mock-leading and leading according to your taste. If you've never placed pro before, we will cover the basics.

Required Items to Bring:
Helmet, harness, climbing shoes, personal anchor, belay/rappel device, prusik/autoblock.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   Take HWY 40 south from the Stoney Nakoda Casino, approx 100km or HWY 541 from Longview until it meets hwy 40 and turns north. The cairn marking the crag is just by a "Texas Gate" sign. https://www.thecrag.com/climbing/canada/kananaskis- country/area/11923129  
Carpool Departure Time:   08:00 AM
Carpool Location:   Rafter Six Ranch for those at Rock Review, or elsewhere TBD
