June 24th is St-Jean Baptiste. Since celebrating during the week is not convenient (have to work...), let's celebrate it on Saturday night!

St-Jean Baptiste is the Quebec day. Quebecois takes this day very seriously and have a huge celebration.

So, the plan is to wake up early and do Tricouni scramble on Saturday. Then go to the Chief campground, try to make a campingmade poutine (never done it, please don't be too critical), celebrate, and go climbing in Squamish the next day.

Here is a description of Tricouni: Takes about 7h (or maybe 8h if we don't have 4WD and can't reach the trailhead), scramble with short moderate corner and minimal exposure, 922 elevation gain (~1120m without 4WD), and 3 stars in Matt Gunn Scrambles book (which means it is awesome)

This trip is beginner friendly! Having some basic knowledge on climbing would be good though (know how to do a figure eight, how to belay, etc...). You can find the gear you need to bring here (summer overnight trip plus an ice axe, a helmet and crampons) and here (rock climbing gear). 

Note: Non-Quebecois individuals are also definitelly welcome :)
