Porcupine Creek has lots of good climbing in the 5.7 to 5.10 range, with a few 11s thrown in for good measure. It's also a nice place to just hang out. 

Plan is to depart Canoe Meadows campsite at a reasonable hour and make the short drive south down highway 40. After a short approach, we'll set up some top ropes and spend the day on the rock.

This is for Rock Review, but if anyone not camping wants to come for the day let me know in the additional notes. 

Required Items to Bring:

Harness, helmet, climbing shoes. 

Recommended Items to Bring:

Belay device, quick draws, personal anchor, chalk, rope, sunscreen, food, water. 

How to Get There:
Event Directions:  

Porcupine Ridge trailhead.

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.
