Itinerary:
4:45 pm - Meet at the parking for Valley Ridge Outdoor Rink, 170 Valley Meadow Close NW 5:00 pm - leave the meeting area promptly at 5:00pm - we need all the daylight we have!
6:00 pm - arrive at the trail head
6:30 pm - climb climb climb
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. If you want to participate, please bring your favourite beverage for the cooler.
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 using it, we will also be bringing club ropes and anchors), water, snacks, camera. Also, don't forget to bring a "refreshment", to put in the cooler for the après-climb gathering in the parking lot. A refreshment can be the adult version or anything else that tastes good after an evening of climbing. It's difficult for everyone to get to a pub afterwards, so this is the best alternative.  Apparently, one of the leaders likes Oreos.
