Trip will run from Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon. If you do not wish to stay overnight we will guide you back to your cars that evening (bring a headlamp).
Carpools will be leaving on Saturday morning at 9:00am from Wallnuts with a trip leader who will also lead you into Lance Cove, the campsite, and the climbing area. The drive is about 1.5 hours. The hike starts in Calvert and is 1 hour, 45mins if you have snow shoes and travel light.
We will have approximately 4 routes set up on top rope. Climbing will be from about noon till dark with the technique clinic at 2:30pm.
More details about the trip will be added, including a gear list and discussions on what ice gear is available for people to borrow.
If the ice does not survive to the date of the trip we will still lead an overnight camping trip just for fun!
