Easy scrambling - off trail, but rarely need hands for balance or for pulling one's self up
helmet, harness, ice axe, snack, lunch, water, trekking poles, normal mountain winter clothing (i.e., warm layers, warm hat, gloves and/or mitts, heavier insulated jacket, softshell, etc.), specific overnight gear (specify on "other" below):, pepper spray (for bears)
We'll leave early the morning of June 21st to ferry vehicles between Waterton and the Castle area, and time to safely cross the West Castle River. Contact the leader for more details.
Participants need to be reasonably fit, and capable of 10-20 km per day with a fair bit of elevation gain, with overnight packs. We'll share group equipment to keep the packs as light as possible. Should be a fantastic trip!
Since this trip travels so high for so far, we'll need a reasonably decent weather forecast to be successful.
