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.
7:00am meeting at the trailhead. Final gear check and hike to base camp. Short skills review.
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.
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 had a great time. The accommodations were excellent, the food was excellent and the staff was excellent. I have climbed with Brand X and Y and I have to say that my experience with Alpine was first class.
