Itinerary:
This session is replacing the anchor session which was planned for May 16, but was rescheduled on May 2. This event is another outdoor practice session specifically for ROCK IT participants. We will drive out to K-Country and do some more practice on belaying, setting up and taking down anchors as well as practice some more climbing technique. As always, don't assume the event will be cancelled just because the forecast looks bad. If for some reason the event needs to be cancelled, we will send out a notification by 3PM the afternoon of the event.
Required Items to Bring:
You need at least all the personal gear as indicated on the list we sent out after the very first session in the library plus whatever you have from the rest of the list like anchor package, rope etc. Helmets are mandatory.

Recommended Items to Bring:
rain jacket, a warm layer (it might be still quite cool out there), snacks, a sip to drink, bug spray

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.
