Climb For a CauseJoin us at the SRC Climbing Room
Climb for a Cause is a day long Climbing event in which participants come out to support the fight against cancer, by climbing to their heart’s content! All entrance fees will go to Cancer Research and Patient Care via the Canadian Cancer Society and Climber’s Against Cancer. Climber’s will be given raffle tickets for their top three completed climbs and entered to win climbing merch and other prizes.
SRC Climbing Room (Which is inside the Bird Coop [Map]).
This event takes place either in November or April of the academic year.
We will be boothing in the NEST preceding the event: dates TBA. We’re only taking registration in person at our booth, or at the event itself on event day (but register early, so you can be assured that you one hour timeslot is reserved for your climbing convenience). Don’t forget to bring $ with you for the registration fee, and a friend who also wants to sign up at the same time to climb with!
As mentioned above, your best three climbs get the following number of chances to win: Beginner Grade Climbs: 1 Raffle ticket. Intermediate Grade Climbs: 2 Raffle tickets. Advanced Grade Climbs: 3 Raffle tickets. (these vary and may change every year.) The prizes climbers have won in the past: Hive Bouldering Gym: 1 one-month membership (valued at $105), 3 one-day passes ($20/pass), Aviary: 3 one-year membership passes, Climbers Against Cancer: 2 Male CAC T-shirts, 2 Female CAC T-shirts, a pair of new Vessi footwear and a $50 UBC Bookstore gift card!
Additional raffle tickets can be bought, and as a reminder, all ticket fees go towards the Canadian Cancer Society – The SRC has generously donated the climbing space for our use, so all of your registration fee is donated!
What is Bouldering?
Bouldering is slightly different – unlike rock climbing, there are no ropes or harnesses attached, and you’re only ever a few feet off the ground. Instead, the challenge in Bouldering comes from bending, extending, and twisting your body from the required platforms! Beginners are welcome – we’ll give you a brief intro of how to begin! If you don’t have bouldering shoes, we recommend you bring a pair of runners or other flexible shoes, and wear clothes that you’d be comfortable to climb in shorts are recommended over jeans!
