Participant Information

All climbers should have experience leading long multi-pitch alpine routes at the level of 5.9... plus have all the necessary gear (including helmet).  Please research the Yak Check route.  I will be taking a pair of half-ropes.

Preference will be given to BCMC members that have climbed sustained 5.9, or harder, routes with me.

NOTE: this trip requires exactly 2 or 4 participants.

Since dry weather is so important both the days before and during the day of the climb, this trip will be postponed if necessary.  End of July and August are typically drier for Yak Peak so hopefully we'll find a good opportunity soon.
