Participant Information

Approach: via Lions Bay trail head to Brunswick Mt.

 

The Climb: Expect  500 m of snow to about 45-50 degrees, possibly with a steep bit at the summit. Concern is the cornice not to mention avy conditions.

 

Gear: Helmet, harness, steel crampons, ice axe, 1 picket, alpine slings (60cm) with biners, couple of locking biners, rope will be provided by the organizer, snow level is around 800 m or less, there is expected wind so bring hardshell, couple of warm gloves, warm drinks and food, avy gear such as shovel, probe, beacon, personal emergency kit

 

Itinerary: Hopefully get to the trailhead at Lions Bay by 5:30am on Sunday morning. Depending what the avy conditions are, we will traverse around Brunswick Mt and decent the Brunswick-Hat col. Trip is expected to take all day 12+ hours car to car. I have attached a gpx file for the intended route.


If conditions don't meet minimum safety levels the trip can be canceled, suspended and moved last minute.

Car pooling: We will meet at St Davids Church at 4:45 am Sunday 16 2020. Lets use the forum to indicate if you will drive and can take passengers.
