Summer Solstice Alpine Climb, June 16-17th 2018
A great opportunity to climb one of Alberta’s highest peaks during the 2018 summer solstice.
Saturday will be a skills day which may include climbing a smaller peak. Skills will include: ice climbing, glacier travel, crevasse rescue, rappelling and ice screw anchors. Meeting time is 8:00AM on the 17th at the ice fields campground in Jasper National Park, the group will be car camping at this location.
Sunday the group will attempt Mt Athabasca (3491m), it will be an early start leaving camp around 4 a.m., so take the time to condition your self the week before. If Athabasca is unattainable for what ever reason one of the many other lower peaks will be attempted.
Minimum experience is strong hiking and or scrambling experience. This course suits all levels of climber from beginner to advanced and a great way to further your skills.
