We'll be climbing Mother's Day Buttress on Cascade. There is a 30 min 3rd class scrambling approach, 8 pitches of 5.6 trad climbing (bolted anchors), and a descent that is mostly a trail but includes some short sections of 3rd class down-climbing and a rappel. Participants must be competent at belaying a leader, and comfortable moving over moderate scrambling terrain. While not required to lead, participants should be able to comfortably climb up to 5.7 outdoors and be on the move for 4-7 hours. If you are interested to lead some pitches, I'm happy to share the lead, but also happy to lead the whole thing. A mix of relative beginners and more experienced participants are welcome to join. If I haven't climbed with you recently, please send a description of your experience level & abilities including relevant climbs you have been on in the past and whether you are interested in leading or seconding.
Required Items to Bring:
Climbing gear (can discuss in detail with selected participants), and a backpack you are comfortable climbing with. We won't be returning to the start of the climb, so everything you bring is coming up & over with us - choose wisely!

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.
