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. 

Required Items to Bring:

Helmet, harness, belay/rappel device, mountaineering axe, possibly crampons. 

Recommended Items to Bring:

Water, food, sunscreen, bug spray, camera

How to Get There:
Carpool Departure Time:   05:00 AM

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.
