Participants: Novices and
Intermediate participants and one additional
rope leader are welcome on this trip. This
trip is for people
who want to be competent & contributing members
of an alpine team. Maybe you have taken an
alpine related course, but haven't been out
much without a guide. Could be you haven't
alpine climbed for a few years and would like
to shake the rust off in a supportive
environment. Maybe you've already enjoyed
mountain activities like rock or ice climbing,
scrambling, or skiing and would like to step it
up and apply that to Alpine climbing.
I can take two people with me, but if an
additional competent person is interested to
co-lead, we can increase the team size to 5 or
6 (competencies dependent).
We'll head up a moderate
alpine climb (most likely Boundary Peak) with
trip leaders acting as rope leaders. This peak
involves a mixture of pitched out ice climbing
((WI2+), glacier travel, and easy scrambling.
Expect a 10 hour day. We'll be moving
consistently at a moderate pace & focusing on
efficient team transitions, but won't be
expecting to set any speed records.
Prerequisites: Participants should
have some previous exposure to travelling in
roped terrain (glacier travel and/or rock/ice
climbing), and be able to competently belay a
leader. Potential co-leaders should have 2 or
more seasons of summer glacier travel and be
lead up to WI3 ice. Please send a summary of
relevant experience/courses to
Required Items to Bring:
Alpine gear will be discussed with the team.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Stoke, sense of humor.
This trip is part of the Alpine Review.
