Description:

Usually, the Sunday of Rock Party (Longhike), the VOC helps out the Squamish Access Society as a 'Thank you for letting us storm your crags' (pun intended this year). The Squamish Access Society are the awesome people that clear, and maintain rock climbing routes and the trails to them around Squamish. If you've ever climbed and been thankful for that convenient bolt before the crux, the mud free trail to the crag, the lack of moss in all the perfect handholds, or the shiny, well maintained bolts&chains at the top of a climb, they are the people you should thank!

This is a great chance to get a workhike in so that you can borrow gear for free from the club, to get to know other climbers/hikers, and to do some trailwork and possibly some climbing after. It'll be very beginner friendly, and it's a great chance to get to know some of the local crags, learn what's new (SAS are also the stewards of new developing crags) and help out - whether you're new to climbing, old to climbing, or if you just want to spend a day out in the forest.

What you may have to do: clear brush (trim branches), carry things (wood, rocks, buckets of dirt), and other trail related things. Bring a good pair of shoes (hiking boots or running shoes), a lunch and a good attitude :) If the weather is good, depending on the group climbing afterwards may be an option.

With the cancellation of Longhike, this is now happening on Saturday the 22nd. SAS will be leading the workhike.

At the pretrip we will organize rides, and go over some trail building/crag clearing basics and talk about what you will need for a daytrip of light hiking and trailwork (if you are new to it).

We could use more cars (2 people want to come that don't have rides)...maybe you, the person reading this, have access to a car and want to come help out? the road to Murrin is entirely paved (2WD) so your car, or your friends' car, or your loveable other's car is not going to be at the mercy of VOCers.

The workhike will be from about 10am-3-4pm.
