Monday looks like it will be great weather so I am looking for one/two partners to climb Mount Joffre, one of the classic 11,000ers of the Rockies in K-Country. It has some snow and possible ice ascent for the last 200 to 300 metres with a few pitches of about 40 degrees near the top. You will need to be fit and able to carry a heavy pack as we are hiking in with bivy and glacier gear. We will leaving the city Sunday afternoon, hike in to the bivy site and start super early on Monday to tag the summit and head back to the parking lot the same day. Total elevation gain 2100 metres and 36 kms return. Please only think of signing up if you have the fitness and endurance to go at a steady to fast pace with us, thank you.
Required Items to Bring:
Camping gear and food for 1.5 days, snowshoes, glacier travel gear, including harness, crampons, ice axe, ice screws, pickets, pulleys, etc.. (A detailed list can be provided)
