Details

You will need Snowshoes, Helmet, Crampons, Mountain Axe, Avy Beacon, Shovel & Avy Probe. If you need any of this equipment, please let me know ASAP. We will do Self Arrest practice and crampon technique practice. If the snow conditions are suitable, we will attempt to climb the Little Italy Couloir.




Notes

Six of us went to Glen Cove. We did a little self arrest practice, dug a pit to evaluate the snow and then climbed Little Italy. We crossed over and came down the Chimney Couloir. Snow was quite hard but was nice to climb. Weather was amazingly warm with no wind. Fun Outing!!




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
