Climb Nova Scotia Top Rope Day at Sorrow’s End Saturday 11

Postby ClimbingGirl » Tue Apr 23, 2013 5:39 pm

CNS members, come join us for a joyous day of top roping outside!

Climbers of all skill levels welcome. We will meet @ 10:00am on Saturday May 11th at the old fish plant / sea sun kayak location on Terence Bay Rd. Climbing will end roughly around 5:00pm. If raining, we will postpone until May 25th. Come climb in a fun, positive and welcome atmosphere. Beginners are encouraged to attend and this is a great opportunity to experience climbing outdoors for the first time! Safety will be a theme for the day.

What to bring: Wear appropriate footwear (GOOD hiking footwear) as you will likely get your feet swamped at least once. Dress in comfortable, weather appropriate clothing. Sunglasses, hat, bug repellent, sunscreen and water are recommended, as there is little shade. If you have them please bring climbing shoes, chalk, harness, belay device and helmet. There is a lake at Sorrow’s End so if you wish to swim bring swimsuit and towel. Be prepared to chip in for gas if you’re catching a ride with someone – it’s always appreciated.

You must be a Climb Nova Scotia member to attend this event, and you can buy a membership online if you don’t have one. All participants will be required to read and sign this waiver on the day of the event.

You must register for this event by donating $5 to Climb Nova Scotia http://www.climbnovascotia.ca/2013/04/cns-top-rope-day-may-11-sorrows-end/:

For up to date details, check out the Facebook page for this event. We can accommodate a maximum of 20 people, so click the Donate button above to secure your spot! If you need a harness, belay device and/or helmet please let us know. Please carpool if possible.

Michelle Lloyd and other Climb Nova Scotia volunteers will set up top ropes on many of the popular climbs at Sorrows End. If you wish to rig your own anchors, lead trad, or sport climb that is your decision and not the responsibility of CNS. This is a non-instructional event, not a guiding service. Climbing is dangerous and you are responsible for your own safety, as with any CNS event. Those who are attending feel free to share opinions and knowledge but realize this is not a lesson provided by CNS and no liability can be accepted by Climb Nova Scotia or any of the CNS volunteers present.

Maybe I grew up watching too much Scooby Doo, but I'd be nervous about any excursion that begins at an old fish packing plant.
