06/28/13 - 06/30/13
Carolyn Graham (Qualified Youth Leader)
This is a strenuous 3-day glacier climb. Participants should be confident they have the necessary fitness and skills required for this route. Day 1 will include a stream crossing that is likely to be thigh deep - sandals and poles required. On day 2 we will attempt to climb Clark 8602' (BG) via the Walrus Glacier (glacier travel and class 2-3 rock) and Lauhna ~8400' (BG) via the Walrus-Richardson Glacier (glacier travel and class 3 rock). Luahna 8400'+ is the unnamed peak about 1.1 miles NW of Clark.

Day 1 approach (about 9 miles and ~3700'-4100' gain)
