Trip Planning Questions

1. Can you drive? If so, how many people can you bring (including you)?

2. Do you have a rope you can share ?

3. Do you have tent/stove you can share ? (I'll try to sort of tent/stove partner before the trip to ensure we are not bringing too much stuff. So, please, let me know if you already have a tent/stove partner)

4. Are you ready to have fun and eat chocolate ?

Participant Information

This trip is for those who helped or participated in the recent BCMC Intro Mountaineering course.  It is expected that a few of the recent graduates will take charge in organizing this trip... with the course instructors helping.

The goal is to summit Mt Slalok (2653m). 

Slalok is a glaciated summit above Upper Joffre Lake. The most popular route seems to be up the Stonecrop Glacier. The rocky summit provides pleasant views.

Ascent Routes:
We will do a group decision once we get there, depending on snow condition, weather and group dynamic.
So far, there are 2 routes, I'm considering:
1. NF/Stonecrop Glacier
2. NF of Slalok between Stonecrop Glacier and Glacier Matier.

• Distance : Round trip from parking lot (Joffre Lakes) : 20km
• Elevation gain : 1495m
• Time required : 10-12 hours

• Saturday, June 24: Meeting at the Church and drive to Joffre Lakes parking lot. Hike to Upper Joffre Lake. Set up camp and talk about the summit route.
• Sunday, June 25: Alpine wake up (probably 1am). Summit and return to cars. 

This trip is weather-dependent and may be rescheduled in case of suspected poor weather. An evaluation will be made a few days prior to departure. 

The following is required of all participants:
• Standard glacier equipment: Ice axe, crampons, helmet, snow picket
• Avi gear :  beacon, probe, shovel
• Completing the recent BCMC Intro Mountaineering course. Training in glacier travel and crevasse rescue
• Smile and happiness !
• We will need to share tents, ropes and cars.
