Black Feather Canyon is considered by many (myself included) to be one of the top crags in the Bow Valley. With a scenic approach and high quality limestone walls, this is a place you want to check out. 

The climbing at Black Feather is mostly in the 5.10-5.11 range, though there are some routes 5.9 and under. Some of the best climbing is in the mid 5.10s. This is an excellent place to challenge yourself if you are looking to climb those sorts of grades. Plan is to set up some top ropes on whatever routes attract peoples interest.

This is a Rock Review event and the plan is to depart Canoe Meadows at a reasonable hour Sunday morning. If you are not camping and want to join for the day you are welcome - just let me know when you sign up. 

Required Items to Bring:

Climbing shoes, harness, helmet, belay device

Chalk, draws, rope, personal anchor, sunscreen, food and water

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.
