great (Finally). The plan is meet at the base

the approach to the stadium glacier, climb the
glacier to the ridge and scramble up the ridge

This has a bunch of
4th class scrambling and is well described in
the Matt Gunn book

** Vancouver Transit Info
Approximate vehicle expense for this event is $25.00 (calculated at total Km * $0.25, effective Friday, September 21, 2018). This is based on the current provincial government rate for private vehicle use. Please pay your share of the cost to the carpool driver.
This is a fairly long day and the key to getting
to the summit and back before the gondola closes
is keeping a steady pace. We will go at a
moderate pace. The overall elevation gain is
roughly 1000 meters. If you are not sure about
the endurance or the technical parts please
email me so I can assess if this is a good
challenge or over your head.|
