Black Feather Canyon is a crag located by Lake Minnewanka
with the climbing areas being an easy to moderate 45 minute
approach from the day use area. Grades at the crag are mostly
in the 5.10a - d range with only a handful of easier grades
sprinkled throughout. I'm more than happy to set a couple
topropes up but if you're comfortable leading and building
anchors, that would be ideal! All ages and abilities welcome
(however be sure you're comfortable climbing those grades)!
Note that preference will be given to those comfortable
leading such grades if registration nears capacity.
The plan is to meet either at Rafter Six Ranch at 8:00 AM (for
those staying the Friday night or for those wanting to carpool
from there) OR meeting at the Lake Minnewanka day
use area at 9:00 AM (see inset map below). We'll climb as
much as possible then leave the crag around around 4:00 PM
to be back at the Ranch in time for dinner!
I will be reserving club ropes and anchor kits for the day, but if
you could bring your own gear to ensure that we have enough,
that would be fantastic! If you do plan on bringing personal
gear, please tell me in the notes section when signing
Friendly reminder that helmets are mandatory for both
climbing and belaying. Please don't forget to bring one!
