Hi everyone,

It seems like some good Ice has formed in Cal-Cheak and maybe some more easily accessible ice in Sqaumish. This calls for a last minute relaxed day of cragging and working delicately with our crampons and tools! 

Only requirment is that you have ice climbed before. Since it will apparently be snowing on Sunday, we are going to have to be aware of snow pack above the Ice climbing area we choose. 

What to bring?

- Ten Essitentials, Ice tools, Crampons, suitable ridged boots, Helmet, eye protection, warm clothing, multiple pairs of gloves, Ice screws if you have them, anchor material, snacks, warm drinks, and general climbing gear like harnesses and etc. There might be some things I am missing but we can discuss that on the message board such as ropes. 

We can also discuss based on schedules for everyone what is worth the drive for a day trip. Meet up time is also not set and stone and we can decide that as a group on the message board, but will likely be fairly early if we want to spend the entire day practicing our skills.
