Participant Information

There will be two carpools for this trip, the first is in Vancouver at the Chevron on Dominion & Boundary at 6:30, I will not be there but I will have someone organize it. The second will be in Abbotsford at the Sumas Tim Hortons at 7:30.

Hike in to a camp near the Coleman Gl seracs (~2 hrs). Set up camp and then head to the seracs to go climbing. This means travel on a glacier! Set up some top-ropes and possibly leading, depending on group interest and ability. At 4 we will pack up and head back to camp, have dinner, and a lovely sleep in the chilly fall weather. Next day we will repeat the climbing, but head back at 3pm so we can pack up camp and get back home.

Optional dinner in Sumas, WA. Joint trip with ACC.

Passport, crampons, ice tools (at least 1 set per two participants, mountaineering axe if you're not bringing ice tools personally!), helmet, harness, belay device, warm clothing, headlamp, tent, stove, pot, warm sleeping bag, sleeping pad(s), lunches, breakfast, supper.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Ice screws and draws (if you want to lead), personal anchors, eye protection, spare gloves, Gore-Tex, thermos.
