1- Have you climbed the Mt Sir Donald Northwest Ridge before?

2- What else have you climbed that is similar in difficulty?

3- Do you have experience simultaneous climbing using quick belays?

4- Are you able to drive and, if so, how many can you take?

Participant Information

This photo was taken on my (Paul) trip in August of 2006.

The trip's main objective will be the long and exposed Northwest Ridge (III, 5.4) of Sir Donald.  A secondary objective will be Uto, which might be possible to do in the same day for fast climbers.

I would like to have max. two groups (4-6 people total) comfortable enough to be able to do simultaneous climbing (a.k.a. "simulclimbing")... using quick belays only to move gear back to the lead climber.  

Whoever decides there are not comfortable with climbing Sir Donald on the Sunday could try to pitch-up Uto, which is somewhat technically more difficult but much shorter. (Grade ~5.6)
