Mount Lawson is rated a moderate scramble in Kane's scrambling
guide. Page 180 of the 3rd edition. Due to the early season nature of
this trip. There will be steep snow slopes and mountaineering skills
such as self arrest and walking in crampons are crucial. If weather
and conditions are good, I am interested in scouting the ridge to
Mount Inflexible for a possible ascent.
Required Items to Bring:
The ten essentials, mountaineering axe and knowledge of its use,
hiking boots (Not shoes), Spare pair of shoes for after the trip,
helmet, crampons, warm clothes and gloves, insulated jacket
(Preferably a medium weight down jacket), shell jacket, shell pants
and gloves, balaclava, ski goggles, personal first aid kit and
emergency blanket or bivy bag, food and water, headlamp, bear
spray, hiking poles, NO COTTON CLOTHES OR GEAR. A pack big
enough to carry all the gear listed above.
