mentorship event is part of the AMP (Alpine
Mentorship Program) organized by ACC Calgary
section jointly with ACMG Guide Brent Peters.
Mentorship Event is for beginner mountaineers.
Beginner mountaineers are people who have been
on a glacier once or twice, can do 3-person
crevasse rescue, completed a 2-day Snow and Ice
course or some of the pre-AMP events and have
done steep snow slope climbs as part of their
scrambling trips. Individuals should also
have some previous experience summer or winter
mountaineering including scrambling (4th class)
and/or easy ice climbing (WI2-3)
have done a few alpine trips such as Athabasca
and want to do more of similar trips such as
Aberdeen, Harrison, Lefroy or similar.
Focus of this
event will be on consolidating safe skills
including rope systems for glacier travel,
crevasse rescue, trip planning and navigation,
alpine snow/ice climbing and scrambling.
Participants will be challenged to create and
execute white out navigation plans to stand on
the summit of Mts Rhondda, Habel, Baker, and/or
