Participant Information

Join me on the Spearhead traverse!

Hopefully we get a good weather window to get an early Spring trip in. The trip would be completed over 3 days, camping two nights with the hope to get a decent amount of skiing in and enough rest in between to make the most of it!

Objectives and route will be discussed together and we'll form a plan depending on everyones preferences. 

If the weather is not looking good for the planned weekend, it'll be pushed to the following one.

What I ask from you;

- Do your homework on the trip and make sure you're comfortable with the skiing, long traverses and potential bad weather camping.

- This is a group trip and you need to familiarise yourself with the route and be comfortable leading certain sections of the traverse, whilst I am the organiser and have experience in the range I am not intending on 'guiding' the group.

- You have glacier experience and sufficient technical skills.

- You enjoy a health dose of type 2, maybe type 3 fun..
