Everyone must bring their personal winter climbing gear including helmet, harness, belay device with locking biner, prusik (for rappelling), mountaineering boots, ice climbing tools, vertical-ice crampons (Or general mountaineering), and a headlamp. Everyone will need to bring anchor material for top roping, preferably really long cordelette or else the rope drag can get real bad at the place were going. If someone has a large tarp, that would also be great to bring. We will need a rope for every two people, and if anyone has something like a tag line for a short belay while seting up the anchors that would be great. 

We will be heading to the Dennett Bluff in Port Coquitlam where a dry tooling crag exist. Here is a description of the crag

We should plan to leave Vancouver at 7:00 and be back around 6-7. The hike to the crag is only about 10 minutes from the car. Make sure to bring a thermos for some hot drinks and some nice waterproof clothing. Lots of pairs of gloves are reccomended. 

Dry tooling is a lot of fun and is an incredibly useful skill for technical mountaineering and other alpine adventures. This place has fun overhangs to pull, cracks to torque up, and slabs to slip around on. We can organize rides and gear in the Ice Climbing Faff thread and or through some other means of communication.
