North Vancouver, BC
Experience Indoor and Outdoor Climbing
Indoor rock climbing is a perfect place to start. Because it is in a controlled environment, it allows you to learn the fundamental skills and progress at a pace that works for your abilities.
We use indoor rock climbing gyms as a tool to get you started and motivated to improve. Once you are feeling comfortable and know what you are capable of, we can work together to progress forward with your goals and aspirations.
We will be using various locations;
– The Edge Climbing Centre in North Vancouver,
– Richmond Olympic Oval,
– and Ground Up Climbing in Squamish.
They are excited to be working with us for private, group, and club experiences.
If you are a gym owner and would like to work with us to provide a more inclusive climbing experience at your venue, please contact us.
Starting this October 2017 we will continue offering adaptive climbing clubs in various indoor climbing gyms.
Richmond Olympic Oval – Every second Tuesday of each month – 6-9pm – we will be there next on Tuesday, October 10th.
Ground Up in Squamish – Every First Tuesday of each month – 4-6pm – we will be there next on Tuesday, October 3rd.
The Edge Climbing Centre in North Vancouver – Every second Friday of each month – 6-9pm – Friday, October 27th.
The idea is that one day a month we will host a club night where volunteers and participants can come together to climb. Being a part of this club means that you can progress your skills in a supportive and inclusive environment.
If you live in the Sea to Sky Corridor, North Shore, or in the Vancouver area please contact us to get involved in these clubs.
Please see the registration links for each of the next club nights on the home page.
This is really what we are all about. We want to share our love for rock climbing in beautiful places, and in a safe, supportive and fun environment.
We provide individual care and attention, use industry leading adaptive tools and techniques, and utilize the experience of qualified guides from Canada West Mountain School. We are excited to be working closely with this highly respected organization to create unique opportunities for people.
Rock climbing outside is something different to each person. For some it’s about just being outside, for others it’s all about overcoming the fear, others it’s learning to trust, and for many it might just be to have a good time with good people in a beautiful place.
Whatever the case may be for you, Canadian Adaptive Climbing Society is here to create opportunities for individuals to benefit from climbing. We do honestly believe that Everyone Can Climb.
Events Coming Up
We had some fantastic outdoor climbing days this season, and we have two more days before the rains come. Saturday, September 23rd and Sunday, September 24th will be our final day out on the rock.
We are so thankful to all the fantastic participants and volunteers who made each day memorable. Together we were able to create a small community supporting each other, challenging each other, and keeping it fun and safe.
We can’t wait till next spring when the rock dries again!
Training and Education
We believe that everyone can climb, and we would like to share the tools and techniques to make a more inclusive and accessible climbing community all across Canada.
We offer training and educational workshops with climbing gyms, camps, guiding operations: any organization that provides climbing.
If you’re an organization who is providing climbing in some form and would like more information about training and education opportunities for your staff and volunteers, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
