Participant Information

We will be climbing Mt. Matier via the northeast spur (PD+) on Saturday followed by Joffre Peak via the southeast face (also PD+) on the Sunday. We will approach from the Cerise Creek Trail which passes by Keith's Hut. 


All participants must have either climbed with me before or have participated in a similar bcmc trip which I can verify with the organizer. 


Tentative plan will look something like this:

Friday night - car camp near/at trailhead 

Saturday - leave around 7am, arrive at Motel 66, setup camp and ditch any non-summit gear in the tents, head up Matier and back to camp

Sunday - head up Joffre and back down to camp, pack up and hike out to cars, celebratory beer(optional) 


All participants will need a full complement of glacier travel/general mountaineering gear excluding rope (I have 1 so only one other participant needs one) and camping gear.
