Participant Information

This trip is heavily dependent on conditions. We will only proceed if the avalanche risk is low, the weather is good and the snow is fairly consolidated.

The plan is to head up on Saturday, and reach a high camp at 3rd lake. The next day we'll attempt to reach the summit via one of the gullies, and then return home. The summit is slightly steeper and may require pitching it out. You will need a good level of fitness and be confident with snow travel and snow camping. The snow will dictate whether we use snowshoes, crampons, a mixture thereof - or cancel the trip entirely.
Now a one-day ascent.
This is not a skiing trip - participants are to slog it out on foot ;)

You must have recent experience in:
- Avalanche safety training
- Snow/ice mountaineering
- Snow camping

Gear required:
- Crampons and ice axe (possibly two axes depending on conditions)
- Snow shoes (for the approach at least)
- Rope (may be able to share)
- Avalanche gear
- Crevasse rescue equipment (unlikely to be needed, so can be pared down / improvised)
- Harness, helmet
- Headlamp
- 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.
