I'm looking to do a half-day trip up to Mt Seymour-I've heard stories about there being ice to climb.
This would be ideal for people that are still studying for finals at this time (like myself), but still would like to get outside for a little bit-plan is to head up early in the morning, skin in to find ice-if we do, we'll try to climb it. If we don't, we can do laps on skis/hike around.
Then we'll be back in town in the afternoon so that we can study...because we're diligent like that. :)
What you'd need other than clothes are:
1) Skis/snowshoes to approach with
2) Stiff boots if you're approaching via skis. to climb in?
3) Stiff crampons, helmet(!), harness, belay device
4) Rope and top rope anchor stuff if you've got it
5) Ice tools if you've get them
6) Screws and things if you've got more balls than I do and want to lead ice.
7) Edit: Avi gear mandatory, of course (beacon, probe shovel, and knowledge on how to use them)
Trip size would be limited to how many pairs of tools we have-and car obviously.
A pair of ice tools per two people would be the ideal ratio.
No pre-trip, organization will be through email faff.
If the weather is really bad we may call it off.
