Itinerary:
I'm planning on doing some retrofitting at Grotto Canyon and want to use this opportunity to show people how to properly bolt climbing routes by using glue-in bolts. The idea is to meet at the trailhead, walk into the canyon and have a little glue-in bolting 101 somewhere around Hemingway Wall. After that we go down to business right away and replace some of the old hardware still from the days when sportclimbing started out in the Bow Valley. This is not a general clinic about how to bolt a climbing routel as the only kind of instruction given will specifically focused on glue-in bolts. Therefore participants which have already experience with route bolting will be given preference on the waiting list.
Required Items to Bring:
A equipment list will be send out once participants are selected.

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.
