How to Get There:
Event Directions:  

Park at Surprise Point. "Climbs on the south side of Tunnel Mountain are reached from the small parking area at the corner of Buffalo Street and Tunnel Mountain Drive opposite the viewpoint for Bow Falls. From the parking area follow a large trail heading east that slowly descends to the valley floor. Continue until a major side channel of the Bow River is reached (about 10 minutes). The river channel bends sharply to the right at this point and there is a small sandy beach. Leave the main trail just past the beach and walk diagonally left away from the river passing a large Douglas fir at the foot of the slope. Locate a small trail (cairn) that zigzags up the slope towards the lower left end of the cliff a few minutes from the river."

Carpool Departure Time:   05:00 PM
Carpool Location:   Elevation place - back row on left.

Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons.
