Product Description

Mt Victoria & Lefroy, June 23-25th & July 6-8th 2017

This trip is perfect for intermediate alpine climbers looking for some of the most classic alpine climbs in the Canadian Rockies. Over three days starting from Lake O’Hara we will make our way up to the birth place of Alpinism and Guiding in Canada, the National Historic Site of the Abbott Pass Hut. We will spend two nights at the Abbott Hut. Day two we will be up early to make an attempt on Mt Lefroy and on our third day ascend the SE Ridge of Mt Victoria with the possibility of ascending a third 11,000’ peak along our decent back to Lake O’Hara, Mt Huber 3370m.

Gear List

SLEEPING GEAR:
o PILLOW, light and small
o SLEEPING BAG (3 season,-9 deg c min)
o We will be carrying this gear up and down so keep it light
CLOTHING LIST
In the mountains it is important to layer your clothing. I suggest layers of light, easily carried clothing that allow for fast and easy adjustment to best suit fast changing temperature conditions in the mountains. Cotton clothing of any kind is not recommended as it causes rapid heat loss when wet. We will have time to go through your clothing and gear prior to the climb.
You will need to bring:
o WOOL/BLEND SOCKS clean socks for each day.
o Warm LONG PANTS to climb in. These should be wool/nylon blend, fleece pants or Sheoller material
o Light SHIRT or T-SHIRT.
o Wool or fleece LONG SLEEVE SHIRT.
o FLEECE SWEATER (medium weight).
o Heavyweight fleece or insulated/down JACKET.
o Water proof OUTER JACKET with hood (Gore-Tex).
o Waterproof OUTER PANTS, preferably with side zips on legs.
o Waterproof knee-length GAITERS that will fit over large boots.
o Waterproof mountaineering GLOVES or wool / fleece mitts /gloves plus waterproof over mitts, two pairs.
o WARM HAT/TOUQUE.
o SUNHAT with wide brim.
o NECK TUBE/BELLACLAVA
EQUIPMENT LIST
You will need to bring:
o MOUNATINEERING BOOTS: You will need proper mountaineering boots designed specifically for this use. Most hiking boots are not suitable not being firm enough, waterproof and not made to take crampons. Mountaineering boots are made from leather or plastic. Leather boots have either a semi-rigid or a rigid sole. Plastic boots have rigid soles. The most important feature of a mountaineering boot is comfort followed by performance. If buying try a few different pairs and if they are not comfortable don’t buy them. There are many good brands. They include Asolo, Kayland, Koflach, la Sportiva and Scarpa..
o BACKPACK: Large enough to carry spare clothing, lunch, water and climbing gear. 40-55liters
o ICE AXE: For intermediate and advanced ascents an ice axe with a curved pick is best suited, 55cm-65cm.
o CLIMBING HARNESS
o 12 PIONT CRAMPONS which must fit your boots.
o CLIMBING HELMET
o SUNGLASSES with good UV protection, ‘glacier glasses’.
o SUN CREAM.
o Lip Cream.
o HEADLAMP with fresh batteries.
o WATERBOTTLE (1L minimum).
o POCKET KNIFE.
o BLISTER KIT (‘moleskin’, ‘Second Skin’)
o FIRST-AID Items (band-aids, ibuprofen & aspirin / Tylenol is enough as I will have a kit also).
o CAMERA
o TREKKING POLE or old SKI POLE
o 3 locking caribiners, 2 non locking caribiners
o 2x5m 6mm prussic cord
