Participant Information

This trip will be a one-day trip covering approximately 38 kilometers round trip and 2900 meters total elevation gain. Despite that, the pace will not be fast and furious. It will be steady and sustainable with breaks. Most travel will be on trail (Centennial Trail or Skyline Divide and then Hozomeen Ridge Trail) to Monument 74. Thence south to Hozomeen northwest ridge. The climbing will require an ice axe, helmet, sturdy mountain boots and crampons. The rock type is such that there is little possibility of placing protection so climbers must be able to climb Class 3 with shorter sections of Class 4, including exposure without belay. Climbers must be able to downclimb the route without rappel. Climbers must be able to self arrest on steep snow. Note: that the route leans back a bit from what photos from a distance show.

In addition to the technical equipment listed above, bring headlamp and spare batteries. Travel insurance is also required as a portion of the trip is in the U.S.A.

We will car camp at Hozomeen Camp the previous evening. Bring a quick breakfast.
