Participant Information

Kind of last minute call for some ice climbing at the Coleman Glacier.

Meet up is at Tim Horton right before the Sumas border crossing  near PetSmart around 7 am Saturday Sept. 22.

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 will 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 and gear testing.
