This is an easier mountaineering trip oriented to less experienced club and new leaders. Priority will be given first to people who have completed BM-1, and second to members who have been active in the club. Note: this is not a course or an instructional event.

The most difficult part is the distance and effort. Expect about 6 hours of climbing on Saturday and 12 hours on Sunday. We'll take it easy and won't be planning to set any speed records.

Required Items to Bring:
  • Passport
  • Montaineering gear (shared: rope; individual: ice ax, crampons, helmet, harness, prussic cords, two locking biners)
  • Camping gear (shared: tent/pot/stove, individual: sleeping bag/pad)
  • Clothing: Expect up to 25C during the day and down to 0C at night. Also, bring a rain jacket/pants.
  • Food: 2 lunches, 1 breakfast, 1 dinner.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
  • Shovel
  • Camera
  • I suggest that for breakfast at least, you bring snack food that you can munch on while moving; having a 15 minute break in the freezing cold at 6am isn't very enjoyable.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:Go to Glacier, WA. Stop at ranger station and pick up pass ($10/car). Drive E down the highway and take the second right on Glacier Creek Road. Drive up staight until you hit the parking lot.
Carpool to Event Distance (round trip):0Km
