Participant Information

Postponed from the week prior:

Proposed Agenda:

Friday - leave the city at 5 or 6 pm, arrive at heliotrope ridge 2-3 hours later (have dinner along way?),  then car camp.

Alpine start with day packs for a fast and light push all the way to the summit. Large elevation gain and so even if in great shape, expect to feel it as we get higher. Get back late Saturday night - have Sunday free

Participants must have mountaineering experience including glacier travel and crevasse rescue training, as well as familiarity with the relevant gear.  

Hardiness and excellent conditioning a must. Expect two days of alpine starts (the drive in, then the summit push)

Sample of gear needed:

  • crampons,
  • ice axe
  • rope  (potential for sharing)
  • harness
  • crevasse rescue gear
  • tent (and other car camping supplies)
  • helmet
  • headlamp/torch
  • and so forth...

Trip is weather dependent and will be postponed if conditions are deemed unsafe

Group size will be kept manage-ably small. Thank you for your understanding
