Come ski up to the peak of Cathedral Mountain. While going up, the conditions will be assessed to determine that the North Coulior exit is viable, if not, we will maintain an exit back to the Lake O'Hara Parking Lot. This will be an alpine start for the day at the Lake O'Hara Parking Lot for 3 AM. Our pace will be moderate, with a strong fitness level (not skimo level).

You should be a confident skier/splitboarder capable of double black diamond terrain in non-ideal conditions.
Rapping skills are a must for this line with experience in glacial travel and crevasse rescue techniques.

If we have not skied together, please send me your ski touring CV/Resume.

I will be accepting digitally completed trip waivers only. Please email it to me prior to the trip.
