Climbing at a local crag Thursday Edition

  • Shouldice Arena

    Hwy 1 & Home Road, Calgary, AB (map)

    51.071499 -114.164856

  • Driving a blue Mini van
  • For those that are unable to attend the Wednesday afterwork climbing.. Lets do it Thursday :). As the days lengthen we could decide to climb further afield than Wasootch but that is the default place to go and play..

    Obviously this event is weather dependant and can be canceled on short notice if the said weather deteriorates... so please check before heading out

    This event is open to all levels of ability.. If you are new to climbing in general it would be advised to take an intro to climbing course at one of the local climbing walls so that you understand the basics about belaying, equipment, movement etc. If you are new you will need to have a bit of patience before getting to climb..

    It would be a good idea to bring warm clothing as the weather/sunshine can vary alot.. Please be at Shouldice asap to 5 pm .. it is a 45 min drive to Wasootch... If you are unable to arrive on time post a note here and meet us at the crag...


    Climbing harness

    climbing shoes:There are numerous types/styles of climbing shoes available. If you are just starting out you can get by with running shoes.

    belay device: (some type of tube, Black Diamonds Guide, Petzels, Trango B 52, etc.)

    2 locking biners

    2 non-locking biners

    Belay gloves ( really really helps )
