This is the sign up and organization page for an old trip. It already happened. Please do not sign up for it.


Main article: Son of Rock

Son of Rock is the traditional spring/summer instructional climbing trip. The rock is finally dry, the snow sucks, and the days are long. The plan is to have several stations set up in the vicinity of the Smoke Bluffs in Squamish. There will be at least one instructor at each station. All ability levels are welcome and no climbing experience is necessary. Tentatively there will be 4 skill levels: absolute beginner, anchor placement, sport lead climbing, and trad climbing. Group size will be determined by instructor availability.

Trip organizer: Todd Mackenzie


location: Meet on Saturday in the Smoke Bluffs parking lot at 9:00 am. Meeting again at 6pm at the end of the day at the same location.
