Itinerary:
AMP 1-2: Mt Joffre 11000er Scramble

For this AMP event we will be heading to the Kananaskis Country.

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 1-2 event and is suitable for beginner to intermediate mountaineers who have been on several scramble routes prior and are interested in a slightly more remote experience. A bivvy will be utilized to make the summit day more manageable and work on overnight skills. These members have experience on 4th class terrain and are looking to advance their scrambling skill set.

The cost for this event is $360 and includes 3 days of mentorship with an ACMG guide from PeakSTRATAGEM.

The focus will be on developing safe skills for trip planning and navigation as well as managing alpine hazards in 4th class terrain. Participants will also have the opportunity to create and execute white out navigation plans. Focus will be on safe travel rather than on summits.

This is your chance to start taking on more of a leadership role while under the mentorship and coaching of an alpine guide.

Itinerary: We will meet at location TBC on Saturday and head to K Country.

The cost of wilderness passes is not included in the event price. All participants will be responsible for obtaining + paying for their passes.

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non- recoverable costs).
