Club Gear

The Section owns, and maintains, an inventory of outdoor gear that is available to section members to borrow free of charge. To request gear, contact the section Quartermaster, Kristen Moore, at Please include the following information in the e-mail:

  1. ACC Membership number (members must have the Great Plains as an associated section)
  2. Desired items
  3. Date and time availability to pick up gear. A pick-up location in Regina will be provided by Kristen.
  4. Return date
  5. Mobile number

Please note that Kristen is a volunteer, and has full control to deny gear requests. In addition, club trips take priority over member requests and, as such, some requests may be cancelled due to this. Club members are not held accountable for normal wear and tear on gear; however, it is the expectation that members replace any items damaged by negligent use, or any items that are lost or stolen while in their possession.


The purpose of the gear cache is to make outdoor sports more affordable and accessible for our members. It’s very expensive to buy ice screws and tools if you only ice climb once a year, or purchase the odd items you might use once or twice. However, if it’s your second season on rock and you foresee yourself staying with the sport, it’s probably time to buy your own soft goods.
