Trip Description

This year we will be offering section members an opportunity to go rock climbing and scrambling on the May long weekend (Saturday May 20 and Sunday May 21, 2017).  We will be based out of the Canmore area.

THIS TRIP IS BEGINNER FRIENDLY. No prior climbing or scrambling experience is required.  The trip is currently capped at 20 participants and leaders.  (Participant number may increase).


Participants will be responsible for their own accommodations.  When we let you know you are on the trip we will try to offer accommodation suggestions.


Participants are responsible for renting their own climbing shoes which can be done at MEC in Calgary or Gear Up in Canmore.  Participants are also responsible for renting their own harness, carabiner/ATC, helmet.  The club has a limited number of harnesses and helmets available at no cost to participants on a first come first served basis.

Travel and Food

Participants are responsible for their own transportation to Canmore and to the climbing areas.  People will typically carpool with other participants and this is usually arranged in the weeks leading up to the trip.


Registration for the trip will open on Sunday March 26 and close on April 9, 2017.

There is a $20 trip fee per participant that is 18 years of age and older.

Prospective participants will be required to complete the signup questionnaire indicating which activity they wish to participate in and indicate what club gear they would like to borrow.   If you require a harness please provide waist size.

Sign up will NOT be on a first come, first served basis. This trip is more geared towards beginners and beginners will be given priority but we encourage anyone who is interested to signup.

Questions can be directed to Don Chodzicki

Registration will open at noon on Sunday March 26, 2017.
