Join us for a day of ice axe practice in the high country at Sonora Pass. I anticipate being able to include a peak climb along with the practice. Optional car camping - details TBD.

Crampon practice is also an option, though we rarely
find suitable snow conditions. Participants supply their own gear, and should have some knowledge of how to use an ice axe, but experience is not required.

Start: 05/19/2012 1:07 am

Objectives are to climb the NW Couloir of Mount LeConte under spring alpine conditions, encountering the "waterfall" pitch near the top, summit LeConte and traverse over to Mount Corcoran on its west side. We'll hike up to the Meysan Lakes to camp on the first day, climb the peaks the second, and hike out the third. Depending on conditions, a rope may be used. Because of the early season conditions, participants must be comfortable on steep mixed terrain without a rope. The July trip to the same area led by Aaron Schuman may be a more appropriate trip for many people.
