The plan is to have a week alpine climbing trip in the Canadian Rockies. The bulk of the trip will be spent climbing/hiking/scrambling and camping in the Tonquin Valley. This is an unguided event for everyone with intermediate to advanced skills. Everyone is expected to be self sufficient and help in organizing the trip. Climbs in the area are classic with good quartzite rock for Rockies standard. Some of the objectives are: Mt Oubliette (NE Ridge), MT Bennington,Outpost and other (see Selected Alpine Climb, 257-279). The current plan is to camp at the surprise point campground that has a closer access to the climbs Ideas are also to spend Sat night at the Edith Cavell Youth Hostel that is located at the trailhead of the Astoria river. The NE ridge of Edith Cavell can also be included in the climbs of the trip. We will drive all day Sun (Aug 30). We may spend 1 night at the ice field campground along the way to break up the trip. If time and energy allows, Mt Athabasca and/or Mt Andromeda can be included in the wishlist.

Required Items to Bring:
Basic alpine gear that includes good crampons and ice axe (1 is okay). Cordelettes and slings to build anchors. A small trad rack. A few pitons can be useful. We will have 2 sets of half-ropes. All the camping gear you may like best (and be able to carry)
