Required Equipment

Required Equipment

  • Helmet
  • Ice Axe
  • Hasty Harness and safety line
  • Scrambling boots
  • Comfortable clothes - similar to what you would hike in, but cotton is fine - we won't be going outside.
  • Backpack - with enough gear in it so it weighs the same as you would carry on a cold day in the mountains.  Sufficient weight to simulate real life is the key .
