A quick update from instructor Abby: July 1st may be the official Canada Day but we figure, why not celebrate again?! This evening the instructors prepared a very special dinner featuring pancakes with Canadian bacon, fruity Saskatoon sauce and a side of poutine. Following dinner everyone participated in the second annual Canadian Olympics— a fun-filled event involving copious amounts of whip cream and flair. There was lots of laughing to be had! After two awesome days of climbing, tomorrow we will head north to the beautiful town of Clearwater, BC where we will spend the remainder of our time in Canada. The students are all looking forward to white water rafting the following day! Cheers!
A quick update from instructor Katie: For the last 2 days we were rock climbing, rappelling, tyrolean traversing, and zipling in the awesome Skaha Bluffs! We rappelled into a cave, and it was by far one of the best parts of our Adventure Treks trip. After the rappel, we zip lined back to the base of the rock walls. The zip line was steep and super fun. In fact, most of us did it upside down. We also had the opportunity to do a tyrolean traverse. This is when we pulled ourselves across a rope spanned between 2 cliffs. Over the course of both days we the chance to do about 25 different rock climbs. These ranged from 5.6 ( easy) to 5.11b (difficult). They were a ton of fun. A special thanks to our guides who were great and made everyone’s days awesome.
