Participant Information

This is a long and physically hard climb. You should have a good experience at high altitude, glacier travel, backpacking, etc... before you apply to this trip.

Consider this trip as an expedition. Expect high altitude extreme condition. Icy condition could happen on the way up/down, so you should be prepared for that (you should know how to belay). 

Mt Baker, Mt Adams or something similar could be a good introduction.

You will need a travel insurance and have no problem to cross the US border.

Everyone should be self sufficient and help the team to be successful.

This trip include a week day to avoid the busy long weekend

Details to follow in the planning forum.
