Hello Section Members.
Up until now we have been reluctant to offer spring and summer courses and trips in light of the current COVID situation. Since the pandemic outbreak began in March we have been in contact with the National ACC office and have been following their lead in our decision.
We now feel confident that we can safely offer some courses and trips following National ACC AND local COVID guidelines.
It is now with great pleasure that we are starting to add courses and trips for the summer 2020 season. Stay tuned to the website as we start to post them.
Looking forward to safely sharing in summer adventures!
Columbia Mountain Section Members.

As you can imagine we are all eager to get into the mountains. Climbing season is just around the corner but right now it is important to stay home. We will be resuming club activities as soon it is deemed appropriate. In the meantime we have organized a live you tube presentation put on by a local physiotherapist to help you with your climbing game. Have a look at our trip page for details.
