This mentorship event is part of the AMP (Alpine Mentorship Program) organized by ACC Calgary Section jointly with ACMG Mountain Guide Brent Peters from PeakSTRATAGEM.
This is an AMP 2-3 event and is suitable for intermediate to advanced mountaineers. These members have done multiple alpine trips and want to start or are already leading similar trips.
The cost for this event is $1020 and includes 4 days of mentorship with an ACMG guide from PeakSTRATAGEM. The cost is higher than previous AMP trips given the small ratio on the trip.
You do have the option to fly in on the Friday rather than the hike, you would be responsible for booking your flight and organising to meet up with the rest of the team, once there. There is no option to fly out on the Monday.
The cost does not include a stay at the Hind hut, this will have to be booked by participants once the trip is confirmed.
The focus will be on coaching you how to climb Assiniboine, developing safe skills for summer mountaineering including rope systems, trip planning and navigation. Participants will also have the opportunity to create and execute white out navigation plans. Focus will be on safe travel rather than on summits.
This is your chance to take charge while under the mentorship and coaching of an alpine guide.
** For this trip to run one participant needs to be a competent rock leader (experience approved by Dom and Brent) and able to lead the 2nd rope. Brent/Peak Stratagem guide will be close by giving guidance if required** The cost for this individual will be a lot less at $650.
Itinerary: We will meet at location TBC on the Friday and head to Mt Shark parking lot to begin our walk in.
