Description:

 

Last minute trip! 

I'd like to summit Wedge Mt. on Sunday and do some ice climbing at the snout of Wedgemount glacier on Saturday. 

We'll be leaving Vancouver early Saturday AM and coming back Sunday evening. 

Very early alpine start from basecamp on Sunday morning to reach the summit just after sunrise. 

Saturday we can do some "ice climbing" at the base of the glacier. 

If you'd like to join please have/be: 

a) backcountry camping experience

b) G1 or equivalent (ex. alpine skills course) 

c) comfortable going up steep/exposed slopes, crossing glacier terrain, carrying a multi-day backpack

I'd like to keep the group small, so maybe two rope teams max..also depending on interest!
