Course Objective and Itinerary:  The emphasis of the Canada West Mountain School Intermediate Mountaineering program is to help participants develop and refine their technical alpine climbing skills. Much time will be spent practicing and refining skills such as technical rope systems, alpine anchor construction, crevasse rescue and movement skills on steep snow and 4th/5th class rock. Each course will include multiple summit attempts in order to allow participants to apply skills in a real setting.


Typical locations include the Joffre Range; the Spearhead Range; and, occasionally we will arrange to fly into the Tantalus Range above Squamish, BC (Flight costs are extra with this option).


Pre-Requisites: Previous mountaineering training and experience and good physical fitness. Previous outdoor rock climbing experience and basic rope management skills, should be comfortable top-rope climbing 5.8.
