Mount Shuksan Climb Itinerary

Upon sign up, we will send you our richly detailed, pre-trip information package.

Day before climb

Mandatory gear check at our offices @1:00pm.

Day 1

7:00am meeting at the trailhead. Final gear check and hike to base camp. Short skills review.

Day 2

Snow skills review. We cover basic snow skills to learn and review proper step kicking, use of ice axe, self-arrest, glacier travel and rope techniques. We concentrate on the skills necessary for the upcoming summit attempt.

Day 3

Summit day. To ensure safety and optimum traveling conditions, we begin with an early morning wake-up to bring us close to the summit by sunrise. After completing the summit, we hike back to base camp, collect our gear and return to the trailhead.

I loved it. The guides were great, the pace was good and the food was excellent.
