Participant Information

We did not get permits reserved so we have to go down and get permits at the Ranger Station.


  • Thursday, July 26: Pick up permits at White River ranger station. Camp at White River trailhead (4200 ft)
  • Friday, July 27: Ascent to Camp Schurman (9500 ft) and an early bedtime.
  • Saturday, July 28: Alpine start. Attempt on summit (14,410 ft) and descent back to White River trailhead.
  • Sunday, July 29: Return to Vancouver.
  • Monday, July 30: It's advised against making big plans for this day to accommodate change in schedule. 

This trip is contingent on good weather and acceptable avalanche risk. We'll evaluate weather in the days prior to departure and adjust plans as necessary.

The following is required of all participants:

  • Previous mountaineering experience 
  • Training in glacier travel, crevasse rescue, and avalanche skills
  • Experience at higher altitudes
  • Appropriate equipment and familiarity with its use, including - but not limited to - a four-season tent, as well as a harness, crevasse rescue, and avalanche rescue gear 
  • Valid passport and ability to enter America
  • A previous trip with the organizer, or with a BCMC member well-known to the organizer

Due to the limitations of our permit, this group is capped in size. However, please add yourself if you're interested in being an alternate. There may be an opportunity to add a second group based on skill level and demand. 

Please note that this trip is being co-hosted with Wilson Edgar.
