$5(m)/$5(nm)
 
 
Are you getting comfortable top-roping, and want to learn a new skill that you can apply outside? Lead climbing is the method of climbing where you clip your rope in to protection as you ascend, rather than being belayed through one anchor at the top of the climb (top roping). In this clinic we’ll teach you the skills needed to effectively lead climb and belay. The clinic will be instructional and have open time for you to practice skills you have been taught and skills you already know. Harness, shoes, and belay devices will all be provided.

Program rating is level 3: Participants must have a belay qualification through the WSU SRC Climbing Wall, and have a strong base knowledge of roped climbing methods and systems.

Non-SRC members will need to pay an additional fee of $5 if escorted by current SRC member, and $8 if not escorted by a current SRC member to gain access to the SRC.

Cancellation Policy: In order to minimize our environmental impact, maintain facilitator-to-participant ratios, meet permit criteria, and transportation logistics, ORC programs are designed for small groups (typically up to 6 participants with 2 facilitators). Late cancellations can seriously impact our ability to accommodate others and recover costs. • Full refunds will be given until the registration deadline. 50% refunds will be given until the day of class. Sorry, no refunds given once class begins.

This multi-day expedition-style kayak tour along the 28-mile, glacially carved Slocan Lake, provides paddlers (novice and experienced alike) the opportunity to experience some of British Columbia’s most stunning scenery from the cockpit of their kayak. This trip will give you the chance to advance your kayaking skills, see new places, and forge new friendships. Where we’re going, we don’t need roads. Surrounded by lush, forested hills and the dramatic Valhalla Mountains to the west, Slocan Lake is a top-notch destination without the crowds common in more accessible parks. Most of our paddling will take place along the rugged, roadless, mostly wilderness, western shoreline. The crystal clear waters of this fjord lake allow paddlers to see their shadows 20 feet deep. Ancient pictographs may be spotted along the rocky shoreline.

Participants can expect to learn and practice the following kayak skills with experienced facilitators:

• Lifting, Carrying, Launching and Landing • Efficient Forward Paddling • Reverse Paddling and Stopping • Moving the Kayak Sideways • Preventing Capsize • Bracing • Turning

As we will be traveling through well-known grizzly bear country, we will have ample opportunities to learn and practice Leave No Trace skills to minimize our impact on the environment. Participants will receive an official Leave No Trace Awareness certificate for participation in this program.

For entry into Canada, all participants must have a current passport and no DUI/DWI’s on their record.

On this trip we’ll depart Friday (early afternoon), get on the water Saturday morning, camp along the lake Saturday and Sunday night, and travel back to Pullman on Monday. We may have opportunities for a hike into the Valhalla Provincial Park.

Sign up early and get $25 off your registration. Participants who register in the first 30 days will pay a discounted price of $150 for members and $250 for non-members. After 30 days, registration will return to its original cost of $175 for members and $275 for non-members. Trip rating is level 2. No kayaking experience necessary! Trip cost includes; group gear, camping equipment, kayaking gear, transportation, permits, and trip leader (food NOT included).
