Club gear availability



To reserve club gear for your trip

  • Trip leaders can request club gear via email to our Safety Director. 

    Please include:

    • Dates that the equipment is required. Include:
      • Gear pickup date
      • Dates of your trip
      • Days you will need to dry and clean the equipment

    • Length of rope required. Note that some ropes are shorter than 60m.

    • Describe the activity that the rope is being used for, so we can match suitable ropes for your trip.
      Examples: non-dry ropes for top rope cragging, dry ropes for ice climbs.
      This will help to extend the life of the gear, especially dry rope treatments.

  • Gear is reserved in order of: first-requested-first-reserved. 
    It is highly recommended to request gear immediately after your trip is approved.


Picking-up club gear

    1. A copy of the email from our Safety Directory that confirmed your reservation. 
    2. Your active ACC Edmonton membership card.
  • The specific kit booked will be the kit issued by TNT staff, as identified by its ID# tag.

  • Please inspect all kits before leaving the store, to ensure all items in the kit are included.

  • Batteries for equipment to be provided by the trip leader or participants. Please remove them when returning the gear.

Returning club gear

  • All gear must be returned to Track 'N Trail, during their hours of operation, in the condition that you picked them up: 
    • Dry
    • Clean
    • In good repair
    • All batteries removed from any devices

  • Return each kit with its ID# tag attached.
    Please replace these if they are lost or damaged, as they are used to identify and book equipment. 

  • If the equipment is damaged or lost, please report it to the Safety Director immediately, to prevent further booking until it is replaced or repaired.
