As the forecast for Sunday looks great, let's have a crag day at Grassi! The plan is to meet at the climbers parking area by Whiteman's Pond (see inset map below) at 10:00 AM and climb until around 5:00 PM. As I'll be out camping Saturday night, please figure out carpooling amongst each other.

The main areas I plan to be at are the walls by the upper lake (i.e. Gardener's, Meathooks, and Graceland). I'm more than happy to set a couple topropes up but if you're comfortable leading and building anchors, that would be ideal.

Currently, I have three club ropes and one anchor so if you could bring your own gear to ensure we have enough, that would be fantastic.

Friendly reminder that helmets are mandatory for both climbing and belaying. Please don't forget to bring one!

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch with me via email (vinzafy@gmail.com) or phone (403)561- 0988.
Required Items to Bring:
Climbing shoes, helmet, harness, belay device, snacks, water

Recommended Items to Bring:
Personal gear (i.e. ropes, anchors, and draws), enthusiasm to ward off rain, and oreos for cragging

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.
