2023 SECTION CAMP: INTERNATIONAL BASIN


This summer we’ll be heading to the International Basin.  The GMC was there last summer and all feedback is that it is a fantastic location.   It offers a broad range of activity with alpine technical peaks, hiking, stunning location to spend a rest day or two admiring the alpine flowers.

We are collating route information and trip logs from last year’s camp.  Once collated we’ll upload to a shared drive and add the link to the event posting.


When: Sign up for one of 3 weeks: This posting is for week 3:   23-30 July.


Where: International Basin, British Columbia Base at an elevation of appx 2100 m.


Who: 12 (max) ACC Members per week. The camp is self-guided, self-catered and self- managed.  Most, if not all, routes will involve glacier travel, so participants should have knowledge of crevasse rescue techniques.  Whilst the Camp is self-guided, we can accommodate some less experienced team members, so please email Clare – clareormerod@hotmail.co.uk – if you’re not certain, to discuss your application.


Interested?: Then sign up for the week and download the application form, once completed please email it back to the Section Camp Coordinator clareormerod@hotmail.co.uk and Week 2 Camp Manager; George.Ormerod@risktec.tuv.com
