Arcteryx Ladies Rock Skills/ Rock Rescue
August 15 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm
This is a ‘by donation’ mini series of skills instruction from ACMG rock guide, Kinley Aitken. The sessions are designed to promote learning current technical skills from certified guides here in our community of Squamish as well as connecting like minded women.
All Donations go towards the Squamish Access Society. recommended minimum $10.
Each session will be 3 hours in length, not intended to replace a full one or two day course but to provide a glimpse of how fun and empowering it can be to be technically proficient.
There will be four sessions with limited space per session (8 per session) and please only sign up for one session. Each session will have its own event page (4 in total).
