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 4
beds at Athabasca Falls Hostel
for a weekend of WI2/3 ice climbing in the Jasper
area. This trip is geared towards new leaders looking for a supportive space as you tie into the sharp end.
The plan is to leave Friday afternoon and return Sunday evening, so please plan accordingly.
The cost is $65 for the hostel.
