–An evening discussion of climbing basics, gear, and knots. This evening will be mandatory in order to prepare for the follow-on weekend.

Friday 7 August – Sunday 9 August: 
Weekend at the Crags (South Island)

NOTE: Due to the complications of camping as a large group while maintaining proper COVID precautions, we will not be camping at Crest Creek as originally planned. All three days will take place as day-trips on the South Island.

-Three day-trips, climbing at a variety of crags on the South Island (in the Victoria and Nanaimo area). Island Alpine Guides will be joining us on Friday 7 August for a day of formal instruction, followed by two days of an ACC-led climbing workshop.

COST: $157.25/person paid to Island Alpine Guides to pay for the day of instruction.

For information on the Island Alpine Guides booking and cancellation policy, see their FAQ page.


This course has been a popular offering over the past few years and it will fill up, so we’re asking that participants be able to attend both the evening session and full 3-day weekend.

We cannot guarantee that once signed up for this course and workshop, a refund can be given if you are unable to attend.

Limit: 12 Participants
