Bouldering at some local blocks – Big Choss, White Budda, Jura crek, etc.
There is no bad weather alternative, so we’ll just make a go/no-go call and decide on the area by 4pm at the latest.
I have two pads that I will bring, but more is better. Let me know if you have some more you would bring.
Newbies to outdoor bouldering welcome. When you sign up let me roughly know what your level is (V0-3 = Beginner, V4-5 = intermediate, V6+= Advanced), since some bouldering areas don’t have too many easy options.
This is the plan:
By 4 pm: Go/no-go based on weather. Decision on bouldering area.
5 pm: Meet at carpool
5.10 pm - sharp: drive to trailhead
6 pm: start hiking from trailhead
Then bouldering till dusk and drive back to Calgary.
Required Items to Bring:
Climbing shoes, chalk, stuff to survive the outdoors for like 5h

Recommended Items to Bring:
Crash pads, climbing brush
