Participant Information

Lets have some fun ice climbing at the Coleman Glacier.

Meet up is at Tim Horton right before the Sumas border crossing  at 1255 Sumas Way near Petsmart  around 7 am Sunday Oct. 29.

We can use the forum to arrange for car pooling.

Gear needed for the outing:

-helmet, harness, crampons (steel), ice tools, 3 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 preferably extra dark hot chocolate.

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

-Your emergency contact.

-Insurance coverage ( BCAA) just for that day and passport.

 

The Plan

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

We are expecting to stay till 6-7 pm.

Rain or shine this trip is a go

 

This is not a course. It's more like a warm-up for the upcoming ice climbing season.
