Details to be determined. Detailed planning email will be sent to registered participants.

COVID-19 vaccination required. Email copy of your vaccination card before the trip.

When requesting permission, email relevant water ice experience. Participants must have taken the Alpine Ice Module and be able to swap leads on alpine ice. Water ice leading experience desired but not required. Participants should be in the process of  growing toward leading WI-2 with style and breaking into WI-3.

There is a possibility we will climb a multi-pitch route that would count as an intermediate ice climb but this is not a guarantee. Conditions in the Canyon (including avalanche hazard) will determine the routes we climb.
