First and foremost,
PLEASE make sure you can attend the pre-trip meeting!
The idea is to do a high alpine traverse. We'll hang out in alpine meadows, swim in lakes, scramble over rocks, tiptoe on glaciers and enjoy alpine vistas.
We will start at Brandywine Meadows, scramble up Brandywine perhaps, tiptoe past Mt Cayley, cross the icefield, go for a swim in Ring lake, finish at Callaghan Lake.
Good baseline fitness and a willingness to slog is strongly recommended for this trip.
There is glacier travel involved for this trip. This means everyone needs glacier travel paraphernalia, and most participants to know how to use them.
4WD high clearance vehicles would be nice to have for setting up the shuttles, though most vehicles should be able to make it up most ways up both sides.
FYI there is a chance that I (Caroline) cannot attend this trip, depending on how my feet are doing. In that case I would need someone to take over participating and leading the trip.
