There will be two capools for this trip, the first is in Vancouver at 6:30, I will not be there but I will have someone organize it. The second will be in abbotsford at the Tim Hortons Sumas at 7:30.

Hike in to a camp near the Coleman Gl seracs (~2 hrs). Set up camp and then head to the seracs to go climing. This travel on a glacier! Set up some topropes and possibly leading, depending on group interest and ability. At 4 we will pack up and head back to camp, have dinner, and a lovely sleep in the chilly fall weather. Next day we will repeat the climbing, but head back at 3pm so we can pack up camp and get back home.

Optional dinner in Sumas, Wa. Joint trip with BCMC.

This trip is not an ice climbing course! Participants are expected to be able to safely travel on low angle ice (crampons) in order to get to the seracs. Participants are expected to have rock climbing experience and preferably ice climbing experience. I will be happy to help with climbing tips if you would like but this is not a course!
