Description:

Anyone interested in doing Sky Pilot in a day? This is a mountaineering/scrambling objective that involves glacier travel and exposed scrambling. There is a particular area of the scramble known as the "pink slab" that some people argue to be a low fifth class rock climb. You should have a reliable self arrest, be comfortable using crampons, and be comfortable with exposure.

Key equipment will include an ice ax, crampons, helmet, and a 30m rope if needed to rapel the pink slab section.

We will not be using the gondola, so this will most likely be approximately a 10 hour day, so please consider your fitness level.

Shoot me an email if you have any questions!
