We are heading to the iconic Bugaboos for this AMP event that will hone your alpine skills for multi-pitch mountaineering, glacier travel and trad rock climbing.  This mentorship event is part of the AMP (Alpine Mentorship Program) organized by ACC Calgary Section jointly with ACMG Guide Brent Peters from Peak Stragegem.

The cost for this event is $561 and includes 4 days (July 26-29) of mentorship with an ACMG guide from Peak Stragegem.  We will be camping at the Bugaboo Applebee campground. Please note, each participant will pay for their own camping fees upon arrival.  The hike in is not long, but is very strenuous, 5.6 km with 900 meter elevation gain.

This Alpine Mentorship Event is for individuals who have basic mountaineering experience and training.   On this event you will further develop alpine skills including route finding, rock climbing and glacier travel.  This is your chance to take charge while under the mentorship and coaching of an alpine guide. Everyone will have the opportunity to collaborate with route planning and depending on your capabilities, take a turn leading the group. The Bugaboos are a dramatic alpine environment including Crescent Spire, Bugaboo Spire, Marmolata and Pigeon Spire.  Specific objectives will depend on the background and skills of the participants.

This event is for the “Advanced Beginner” to “Intermediate” level mountaineer.  Previous mountaineering should include; a handful of alpine trips, basic rock and lots of scrambling trips. Participants should have the following mountaineering skills:
