AMP 2: Balfour Mountaineering
For this AMP event we will be heading to Waputik Icefield.
This mentorship event is part of the AMP (Alpine Mentorship Program) organized by ACC Calgary Section jointly with ACMG Mountain Guide Brent Peters from PeakSTRATAGEM.
This is an AMP 2 event and is suitable for intermediate mountaineers who are looking to take on more of a leadership role. They have experience on glaciers, 3-person crevasse rescue, completed a 2-day Snow and Ice course and have done steep snow slope climbs as part of their scrambling trips. These members have been on alpine trips such as Athabasca and want to start raising their competency to be able to lead similar trips.
The cost for this event is $360 and includes 3 days of mentorship with an ACMG guide from PeakSTRATAGEM. We will be camping for 2 nights, location tbc. The cost of wilderness passes is not included in the event price. All participants will be responsible for obtaining + paying for their passes, if required.
The focus will be on developing safe skills for summer and winter mountaineering including rope systems for glacier travel, crevasse rescue, trip planning and navigation. Participants will also have the opportunity to create and execute white out navigation plans. Focus will be on safe travel rather than on summits, but one day is usually set aside for a summit bid.
This is your chance to continue developing this unique alpine and leadership skill set while working with an alpine guide.
Itinerary: We will meet at location TBC on the Saturday and head to Little Yoho/Takakkaw Falls.
