Events Calendar

ACC Members Only: Scheduled events are for MEMBERS ONLY who have completed the waiver form (must be signed by parent or guardian if under 18) and met the trip leader's requirements. You can join online at or by filling out a membership form, and paying in full, when you sign up or show up for the event.

Sign Up Early: Call early to be listed if participating (no later than the Wed. before a weekend event, before 9 p.m. - or much earlier for popular events like our Women's Clinics) or if you are willing help lead the trip. Member participation in section events is at the discretion of trip leaders and members must meet trip leaders' requirements.

Skill Levels:

  • Beginner - means you have no or next to no experience with climbing, and have no gear or knowledge of basic safety techniques and procedures. All technical equipment (helmets, harnesses, ice tools, etc.), except shoes/boots, is provided on beginner outings, and the emphasis is on learning and having lots of fun. You just need to bring enthusiasm and a safe attitude.
  • Intermediate - means you have your own basic technical gear (helmet, harness, belay/rappel devices, shoes/boots, tools/crampons), as well as basic self-sufficiency skills (belaying a toprope or lead climber, rappelling safely with a back-up). You are willing to be a first-class second - help set up and tear down climbs and hump gear, and assist trip leaders where possible.
  • Advanced - means you are proficient with most basic/intermediate climbing skills, have all your own gear, and are okay with assuming responsibility for yourself and other event participants. You should plan to sign up for advanced events with your partner, and be prepared to do your fair share of work to make the event happen.

LAST "Last Chance Ice Climb"


The forecast continues to look very promising for ice climbing into this weekend.
This year's spring climbing conditions have continued to be very good and we thought we'd run one more 'Last Event'.

If you're interested in ice climbing this Saturday OR Sunday, please complete the Google Form link below and sign-up on-line below

Members are expected to have all their own basic safety gear, boots and crampons. Axes can be provided if required. 

Those ACC Section Members who have signed up by Friday noon will be advised of the complete details for this Event by Friday evening. Of course weather is always a factor to make sure all participants have an enjoyable experience.  

This will be our absolute last Ice Climbing Event for the season! If you would like to contribute in any way, please complete details on the Form.  

A location will be determined depending on number of attendees and weather forecast. 

This is a No Pets event.

If you need to borrow or rent gear any personal gear, PLEASE RESERVE IT ASAP. Only Club Ice Axes will be made available to borrow for this event.

Any questions... contact Frank at
