Porcupine Creek is an excellent place for beginner to intermediate climbers with lots in the 5.6-5.10 range. There are a few 5.11s for good measure. It's also just a nice place to spend time if the weather is good. 

Plan is to camp at Canoe Meadows and then make the short drive down highway 40. If you are not camping but want to join for the day please let me know in the notes when you sign up.

Helmet, harness, belay device, climbing shoes

Draws, rope, personal anchor, food, 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.
