Participant Information

The timing of this trip is heavily dependent on conditions and timing of other trips. Consider it plus or minus 2 weeks or so.

The plan is to head up either on Saturday, and reach a high camp. The next day we'll attempt to reach the summit and return home. The summit day could take somewhere from between 11 to 18 hours, so you will need a high level of fitness and be confident with glacier travel, crevasse rescue and snow camping. I will use screening to select participants who have these skills, as well as who have shown themselves to be reliable club members - this is not a good first trip.

You must have recent experience in:
- Roped glacier travel
- Crevasse rescue
- Snow camping

Gear required:
- Crampons and ice axe
- Rope (may be able to share)
- Harness, helmet
- Crevasse rescue equipment
- Avalanche equipment
- Headlamp/torch
- Camping equipment
- 10 essentials, other gear

Emergency Info: 
Make sure your Emergency contact is up to date. You will need this to attend the trip.
