This is a Women's Climbing Mentorship Group event. This is a Women's Climbing Mentorship Group trip, priority to women & group participants. The purpose of this group is for women to have the opportunity to learn in an environment where they are not the minority and can expect supportive coaching. We've booked 8 beds at Athabasca Falls Hostel to take on a nice 3-day weekend of (likely) rambly (i.e. WI2/3) ice climbing in the Jasper area. We have booked with the intention of taking Monday off to make the long drive more worth it. Friday climbing will be an option as well for those able to leave in the AM (highly recommended). Specific destinations will be chosen based on participants' abilities. This would be a less appropriate trip if you are a total beginner, but very appropriate for competent followers and fledgeling leaders. If in doubt, please email. Preference to those who have attended previous WMG trips. Carpooling determined based on participants.
Required Items to Bring:
Crampon-compatible boots (ski boots work), ice crampons*, ice tools*, harness, helmet, belay device, personal anchor (or 2), goggles/glasses for face protection, gloves (multiple), warm layers etc. *you may be able to borrow or rent these if you don't own them...

Recommended Items to Bring:
thermos, hand warmers, screws, draws, screamers, ropes
