Volunteers are asked to bring marked hand tools such as clippers, shovels, picks, pry bars, handsaws, rakes, gloves and first aid equipment. Rainwear, sturdy footwear and a packed lunch are also recommended.

Climber Michael Reardon will share his free soloing feats Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Brennan Park Leisure Centre auditorium. The talk includes his climbing achievements, including tales from his 2005 unroped solo of Romantic Warrior (V 5.12b) in California’s Needles. Tickets are $12 and $6 for Adopt-A-Crag volunteers.

After the talk, the Adventure Centre Party spins a dance floor of fun from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. A local DJ is on deck along with plenty of door prizes to be won. No minors allowed. Tickets are $10.

The competition is underway Sunday at 8:30 a.m. at the Adventure Centre.
