Plan will be an alpine start to tackle the NE Ridge to the summit of Mount Bell. The route is rated somewhere between 5.3-5.5, depending on who you believe. It's a classic rockies alpine route. You should be comfortable scrambling 4th/low 5th class terrain. This is a long route with lots of scrambling. We will bring a rope and gear to pitch out trickier sections.
Descent is via a steep snow gully. Mountaineering axe required, crampons possibly needed.
This is a day trip, with carpool from Calgary. Expect the climb to take about 12h.
