Scramble up Mary Barclay's Mountain at a moderate pace. Will follow Nugara's description from "More scrambles in the Canadian Rockies" and plan to use the alternative descent.
~850m elevation gain rated "moderate" with mild exposure near the summit. 5-7 hour day.
Not planning a carpool at this point but the tentative schedule is to meet at the Stoney Nakoda Casino at 830 am and convoy to the pull off on the east side of the highway just past the Wasootch creek bridge.
Trip will only run if the river level is manageable based on what Transalta is releasing from the Pocaterra dam and weather is good. Will discuss alternatives if weather is good but river is too high.
If we don't know each other yet send me a quick email with your experience and we can make sure the trip is a good fit.
Required Items to Bring:
Helmet, backpack with layers, food, water, sunscreen, sturdy boots + shoes to cross the river. Depending on skill level a harness. Will go through a more thorough gear list with participants.
*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. Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. 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). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Calgary Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
