Part of Rock Review! We will be doing Dancing Sasquatch (5.7), which is a 3 pitch walk-off in Banff.

This trip is aimed at participants of ROCK- IT or other introductory multi-pitch courses, and will be an opportunity to practice and see the systems you've learned in action. You must know how to provide a safe lead belay!

Let's meet at Rafter 6 Ranch at 9:30AM and carpool to the trail-head in Banff. After the climb, we can enjoy the view and a snack on top and decide if we are up to afternoon cragging at Black Band afterwards.

Please email me ( and let me know if you've participated in ROCK- IT or learned about multi-pitch systems before, and if you're keen to lead a pitch!

Required Items to Bring:
Helmet, harness, belay device and locking carabiner

Recommended Items to Bring:
Good attitude, snacks, sending Oreos!
