Rock Review is an annual event. Reviews are a season-opener. It is an opportunity for beginners to get their feet under them and receive some mentorship, for members to socialize, join one another on climbs, and thaw out our iced-over rock skills.

MEALS AND ACCOMMODATIONS: We have booked camping at Rafter's 6 Ranch. Tents and RVs can both be accommodated. There are port-o-potties and a fire ring.
*WE need to bring our OWN DRINKING WATER

REGISTRATION: Rock Review is live! All payments MUST be received by June 10 to reserve your spot.

Make your payment by clicking the Buy Now button below. You do not need a PayPal account. You can pay with a credit card.

Enter your email address:
IF YOU CANNOT GET PAYPAL TO WORK or your bill includes payments for children under 12:

Make your payment for Rock Review using the standard method of sending an e-transfer to the treasurer. Instructions as follows:

  • Send an INTERAC e-Transfer to
  • Provide the following information in a SEPARATE e-mail to

    Trip Details
    1. Name
    2. Date of Event (June 14 - 16)
    3. Coordinators Names (Anne Drew, Vince Zafra, Lida Frydrychova)
    Personal Details
    1. Name
    2. Address
    3. Phone Number
    4. Email Address
    5. Password to Accept the e-Transfer


    Take a screenshot (or "print" to pdf) of the receipt PayPal displays and send it to Vince OR if using the e-Transfer option, forward the email sent to the treasurer to Vince. Regardless of payment method, use the email address with the subject title: "Rock Review 2019 Payment". Once sent, you should be added to the attendee list within 24 hours.

    $25 gets you 2 nights of camping (Friday & Saturday) and a Saturday- night meal (Burgers on the BBQ with sides and all dietary accommodations). Children 12 & under pay a reduced cost of $10 (if your party includes children, please pay by e-transfer as the paypal will not offer you the correct payment ammount). We cannot do partial payments, even if you don't want to camp Friday. Once you have paid, you will be moved onto the event. This can take at least a week.

    LEADERS: Leaders will post trips independent of the camping/meal. You will need to sign up both for the review and for a trip (or plan a private trip). Expect some group TR/cragging events for all levels and some multipitch objectives. Expect a leader planning meeting in late winter, and possible leader retreat in early June. 

    PLANNING: We will still need help to organize the event especially the food/cooking. YOU DO NOT NEED ANY ROCK EXPERIENCE TO HELP WITH PLANNING.

    MINORS: We welcome participants of all ages, those 16 and under must attend with a parent or other designated adult. All minors (18 and under) should contact the leaders when signing up.

    QUESTIONS: as usual, please email questions to the leaders or the climbing chair -

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.
