Participant Information

The plan is to head up early on Sunday morning and park at Joffre Lakes trailhead (at approximately 7am). Then we'll hike up the Tszil glacier (to get some glacier travel in) and head up to Tszil mountain and over the col to Taylor before descending back to the carpark (either from the Tszil-Taylor col, or down the ascent route).
There are no steep slopes on this route, and the Tszil glacier is a relatively uncrevassed glacier.

You must have recent experience in:
- Roped glacier travel
- Crevasse rescue
- Avalanche safety training

Gear required:
- Crampons and ice axe, probably snowshoes
- Rope (may be able to share)
- Harness, helmet
- Crevasse rescue equipment (can pare down as the route is practically uncrevassed)
- Avalanche equipment (to be discussed)
- Headlamp/torch
- 10 essentials, other gear

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