Itinerary:
Are you aspiring to improve your lead climbing technique on ice. Do you get a little pumped out on steep ice, sometimes get a little desperate when placing that ice screw? So do we. The focus for this trip will be to head out and work on steep ice lead technique. The plan will be to take photos and video to provide critique for each of the participants. We are not ACMG guides, so we will all be learning/critiquing each other.
Required Items to Bring:
Personal ice climbing gear; eg helmet, harness, tools, equipment for belay and rapping, etc.

Recommended Items to Bring:
We will bring a SLR camera and tripod, if you want other photographic equipment that would be great.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   TBD based on final destination  
Carpool Departure Time:   07:30 AM

Carpool Directions:   Head west-stop at Petro Canada, we will park along the east service road
