Participant Information

Lets spend two days ice climbing at the Coleman Glacier.

Meet up is at Tim Horton right before the Sumas border crossing  near PetSmart around 7 am Saturday July. 13.

We can use the forum to arrange for car pooling.

Gear list:

-camping gear if staying overnight.

-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 may 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 or other way to get in i.e. bribing an officier or digging a tunnel might work. 

-sense of humour.

 

The Plan

Get to Heliotrope Ridge Parking Lot and hike in to the glacier.

Camping spots may be at the glacier or at Mirkwood.

We are expecting to stay till 6-7 pm on Sunday evening.

Rain or shine this trip is a go.

 

This is a warm-up for the upcoming alpine ice climbing season, gear testing, and sharing techniques.
