Participant Information

We plan to leave around lunchtime on Friday, camp somewhere above the little Cypress pk glacier (depending on how fast we are). Next morning, alpine start (5am) to Cypress peak, onward traverse to Tricouni and back the same way. Looking to be back in Vancouver for late dinner, but prepared for a later arrival.

I have climbed both peaks a few times, but have not done the traverse between them. I do not expect steep snow but I suggest bringing an ice axe just in case.
