Participant Information

Ice Scramble exploring the glacier above the seracs on the Coleman Glacier at Mt Baker WA


We will be crossing the border into the United States so make sure your documents are valid before the trip date to avoid delays for the group.

            This is not a course:  assess your experience and skills carefully.

You must have glacier travel experience and safe belay practices.

The focus will be on low angle glacier travel (up to WI2) and crevasse navigation.

A few spicy moves possible for those inclined...

Gear required:

Bring your own ten essentials.

Headlamp (fresh batteries!)

Helmet, Harness and Belay Device.

Goggles or protective glasses. Sunscreen!

Rigid boots and steel crampons (such as BD Sabertooth or Petzl Lynx.)

    Properly fitted before the trip date! 

We do Not recommend light mountaineering crampons (such as BD Contacts or Aluminum crampons) or Monos, as we will encounter poor conditions including crumbly rock, frozen slush and sun-affected glacier ice.

One General Mountaineering Axe plus One Technical Ice Tool.

Ropes, ice screws and other climbing gear.

Organizer will use the Planning Forum for additional information
