Participant Information

Approach: via Lions Bay trail head to Brunswick Mt.


The Climb: Expect  500 m of snow to about 45-50 degrees, possibly with a steep bit at the summit. Concern is the cornice not to mention avy conditions.


Gear: Helmet, harness, steel crampons, ice axe, 1 picket, alpine slings (60cm) with biners, couple of locking biners, rope will be provided by the organizer, since the approach is long I am opting for snowshoes (snow level is around 800 m), there is expected wind so bring hardshell, couple of warm gloves, warm drinks and food, avy gear such as shovel, probe, beacon, personal emergency kit


Itinerary: Hopefully get to the trailhead at Lions Bay by 5:30am on Saturday morning. Depending what the avy conditions are by Thursday, we will traverse around Brunswick Mt and decent the Brunswick-Hat col. Trip is expected to take all day 12+ hours car to car. I have attached a gpx file for the intended route.

If conditions don't meet minimum safety levels the trip can be canceled, suspended and moved last minute.

Car pooling: We will meet at St Davids Church at 4:45 am Sunday April 15 2018. Lets use the forum to indicate if you will drive and can take passengers.
