6:00 pm arrive at the trail head
6:30 pm climbing
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 more

Note that if 4:15 is too early for you to meet, we will announce which crag we will be going to the day before the event, and you can meet us there. We will be bringing the cooler for the après climbing review and social. If you want to participate, please bring a contribution of your favourite beverage to the cooler. Then if the weather doesn't cooperate, we will be going to the new Rocky Mountain gym for an evening of indoor climbing.

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, your own rope (if you don't mind other people top roping on 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.

How to Get There:
