Participant Information

Let's have some fun ice climbing at the Coleman Glacier.

First meet up place will be 6am  4:50 am  at the Chevron near 12th Ave and Boundary... we'll leave at  5:00am  sharp.  Second meet up will be at 7am  5:40 am  in Tim Hortons (near the Pet Smart), right before the Sumas border crossing.  Please ensure you are at the meeting place slightly BEFORE the meeting time... thank you.

We can use the forum to arrange for car pooling.

Gear needed for the outing:

- helmet, harness, crampons (steel), ice tools, 3 or more long ice screws, anchor material, rope.

- Many pairs of thin layered gloves. Pair of goggles, appropriate clothing (it may rain), lunch, snacks, warm Thermos drinks such as extra dark hot chocolate.

- Bring cash for the driver if you are getting a ride.

- Your emergency contact.

- Proper documentation to cross the US-Canadian Border, e.g. Enhanced Drivers License or Passport.

- Insurance coverage (BCAA) for that day plus the next... costs about $20.

The Plan

Get to Heliotrope Ridge Parking Lot and hike in to the glacier.

We are expecting to clean anchors at ~3:30pm and be off the glacier just after sunset 4:24pm.

Trip will be cancelled if there are weather forecasts for heavy rain or snow.

This is not a course.  Consider it a warm-up for the upcoming ice climbing season.
