This hike is suitable for strong intermediate or advanced hikers.Hikers coming on this event are expected to have recent D5 level experience. If you don't have a history with the TOC, please include some comments in the notes about your hiking experience.

A combination loop and "there and back" hike starting from Grey Rd 19, we will descend the Escarpment on the Metcalfe Crevice Side Trail through a rocky gorge 30m high, visit the Crevice Caves at Metcalfe Rock, pass the base of Pinnacle Rock, and return via the Chuck Grant Side Trail and the Main Trail.

Those willing to drive and regular D5 hikers will be given preference on the waiting list

Note: If you come on a winter hike, you should always have a pair of icers in your pack. You won't have to use them very often, but when it is icy on the trail, you'll need them. The icer is held to your boot with a set of Velcro straps, and keeps you from slipping and sliding. You can purchase good quality icers at MEC.
