We will be doing an after work climb as high as time permits us to on the Rundlehorn (5.5 sport with a rappel descent). Since it's a rappel descent, we can turn around at any point, and so can adapt to the group's pace. Priority will be given to Women's Climbing Mentorship Group participants who are new to multi-pitch climbing. Participants can either second the climb, or lead portions if they are up for it. We will carpool from Calgary Tuesday after work at 4:30 and will return Tuesday evening. Please do not hesitate to email with questions.

Once we have determined the party we will coordinate further plans. Please send an email to Susan or Leah with the following information:

-Do you know how to rappel?

-Have you climbed a multi-pitch before?

-Do you know how to set an anchor and how to do a top down belay?

-Do you know how to lead belay?

-Can you lead climb? If so, what sport grade?

Required Items to Bring:
helmet, harness, personal anchor, prussic, belay device, shoes, layers, food & water, headlamp, water, backpack, hiking shoes/boots

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.
