ROCK REVIEW is an annual season-opener event. The review is an opportunity for beginners to get their feet under them and receive some mentorship, for members to socialize and join one another on climbs, and to thaw out our iced-over rock skills in prep for the upcoming climbing season! 

The information below is for those who are going to be camping, Friday and Saturday or just Saturday night. You can participate the day events without camping but you still need to sign up for the events. 

*Trip Leaders will be posting climbing opportunities separately from the general event - you will need to sign up for these events independently - more events will be posted closer to the event*


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. 

**You need to bring your OWN DRINKING WATER and FOOD for the evening and climbing days**

Friday (after 5pm): Come out to Rafter Six Ranch and hang with the group if you'd like. Camping will be subsidized and paid for by ACC for members that sign up! 

Saturday AM: Top ropes will be set up in the Wasootch slab area. Come out for some top rope fun or head out with your own buddies for a day on the rock. Check the event calendar for other day-trip events as well.

Saturday PM: More hangout time at the campsite while people make their own dinners; campfire, drinks and shenanigans to follow! 

Sunday AM: More fun on the rock. In addition to the trips posted for Sunday, there are usually some plans made Saturday night. A top rope area may be set up, depending on interest and availability of volunteers.

PAYMENTS: The section is subsidizing this event and paying for the camping for ACC members that sign up for the event. 

LEADERS: Leaders will post trips independent of the camping. You will need to sign up BOTH for the ROCK REVIEW EVENT and for any separate TRIPS (or plan a private trip). Expect some group TR/cragging events for all levels as well multi-pitch objectives.

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 any of the leaders or the climbing chair (Chelsea,

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. 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.
