Seattle Basic SIG SNOW FT - SIG Snow Overnight (Snow Anchors & Belays, Crevasse Rescue, Snow Camping, & Roped Travel) - Snoqualmie Summit Ski Areas

SIG Snow Field Trip (Snow Anchors & Belays, Crevasse Rescue, Roped Travel) - PART 1 OF 2

  • Sat, Apr 4, 2020 — Sun, Apr 5, 2020
  • Seattle Climbing
  • Climbing
  • Adults
  • Casual
  • Elevation Gain: 800 ft

9:00 am at the Hyak Glacier (Summit East) parking area.

This SIG field trip will introduce basic climbing class students to the basics of snow belays, snow anchors, walking in crampons, and roped travel

This is PART 1 of two parts.  

PART 2 will be an overnight snow camp and climb of Mt St Helens May 2-3.  Ours is the only SIG that splits the required SIG Snow  activity into two parts.  Climbing St Helens  in winter conditions is a great experience, but the long drive and approach would not leave us time to teach all the snow skills in the SIG curriculum

Sunday April 4 is our primary date.  If the forecast looks terrible for Sunday and better on Saturday, we may shift to Saturday April 5.  Try to keep both days open.
