Itinerary:
A drinking weekend, with some ice climbing... well maybe not quite that way round, but Rampart does have a reputation. The climbing will depend on what's happening that weekend conditions and avalanche wise, so details will be released closer to the time, but it will be fun. Saturday night will be a pot luck, but bring food for all the other meals. As you may have gathered from the trip title, we may partake of an odd beer or Margarita - so bring something along those lines. Beginners welcome - as long as you can belay, operate in winter and bring all your own personal kit (if you're struggling for kit, speak to us....)
Required Items to Bring:
All the usual ice climbing stuff.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Should you fancy toddling off and leading something like Oh Le Tabernac, bring your own lead rack, belayer and change of underwear.
