Participant Information

A search for ice in the Anderson Range.  Plan to bushwack into the Ibex/Chamois col area with the hope to find some alpine ice early in the year before too much snow falls, summit Ibex as a daytrip if conditions allow.  This will be a VERY early departure and a very late return, participants are welcome to crash at my place on Friday night.   A re-route will be planned if we have lots of early season snow preventing driving on the logging road.


Required Minimum Equipment:

Suitable backpack


2 Ice Tools

Suitable boots (full shank)

Crampons (for vertical ice)


Suitable clothing for the weather (potentially all day in the rain in the alpine)

Belay/Rappel device (for small diameter ropes)
