Rectified by Rocks? Dazzled by Dance? The VOC welcomes you the annual Rock Party. This will take place in the beautiful Sunwolf (“resort”) campground. There will be 4 levels of rock instruction and one uniform level of stoke on the dance floor. Rock instruction starts from never having touched rock indoors or outdoors to honing your trad skills. Everyone is welcome and you are responsible for siginging up for the level which best fits your skill level and learning goals. See the wiki page for more information.


 Rock Levels

     1. Introduction to Rock Climbing
     2. Anchors + Rappelling

     3. Sport Lead Climbing

     4. Traditional Climbing


We are renting a party tent, and there will be a DJ. We are also serving dinner (included in event ticket) and beer (at cost) to anyone that is of age. There is also a hot tub.


There will be a pre trip meeting September 30th at 6:30pm (ANGU 098). At this event we will go over what you need to bring and assign rock levels. We have also procured donations from Grandwalle climbing equipment which will be raffled off.



Vivified by volunteering? To raise stoke for the event I have opened up the volunteer page! Help make the event happen. Last year one member volunteered for 6 shifts! Tickets go on sale September 16  and will be $40 for tent space and $60 for a cabin ticket (3 people per cabin). 

Tickets can be purchased during gear hours at the club room or at the VOC booth during clubs day, imagine day and all those other days.


Edit 1: We have enough instructors so if you are a great rock climber and still want to go on this trip, buy a ticket. We are looking into making a rock 5 instructional group.
