Same as previous years, except this year the group size is smaller and it’s a lot more complicated for COVID 19 reasons. Please read the Calgary Section Protocols, http://www.acccalgary.ca/calgary-section-protocols/, and print and sign a waiver/declaration of health, http://www.acccalgary.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/ACC-Waiver-2020.pdf, before you arrive. We’ll meet at the parking for Valley Ridge Outdoor Rink, 170 Valley Meadow Close NW for car pooling among trusted friend groups, waiver collecting, instructions, etc. before we head out. Note that the leaders are all volunteers and we all want to do this safely. Everything else is as before:
4:45 pm - Meet at the parking for Valley Ridge Outdoor Rink,
5:00 pm - leave the meeting area - we need all the daylight we have,
6:00 pm - arrive at the trail head,
6:30 pm – climbing,
Dusk -Pack up the ropes,
have a "refreshment" in the parking lot with everyone else, then head home Night -Get back to town and dream about climbing
Note that if 4:45 is too early, you can meet us at the crag. We will be bringing the cooler for the après climbing review and social. We have lots of refreshments left over from previous ACC events, so they will be free until we run out. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we will be cancelling the evening with no plans to go to the gym. In previous years we were more casual in terms of attendees just showing up, but this summer we'll have to be more strict.
Required Items to Bring:
Helmet (strictly required - no helmet - no
climbing), harness, locking carabiner, belay
device, rock shoes.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Sport climbing gear, draws etc., your own rope (if
you don't mind other people top roping on it, we
will also be bringing enough club ropes and
anchors), water, snacks, camera. Apparently one of
the trip leaders likes Oreos.
How to Get There:
please sign up and remove yourself as required so
that we have an accurate idea of the number of
people to expect.
Carpool Departure Time:
Valley Ridge Outdoor Rink
170 Valley Meadow Close NW
Cancellation/Partial Attendance: Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!
If you can't make it, just let us know by removing
your registration from this site.
*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. 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. The Calgary Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
