Main article: Son of Rock

Son of Rock is the traditional spring/summer instructional rock climbing trip. The rock is finally dry (hopefully), the snow is less than ideal, and the days are long. The plan is to have several stations set up in the vicinity of the Smoke Bluffs in Squamish with 'instructors' teaching a variety of climbing skills. There will be at least one (but most likely two) instructors at each station. All ability levels are welcome and no climbing experience is necessary. There will be 4 different climbing courses: 1: absolute beginner, 2: building top-rope systems off of bolts and/or trees, 3: sport lead climbing (leading on bolt-protected routes), and 4: trad climbing (leading on removable protection). Group sizes will be determined by instructor availability.
