Summer Camp 2015 - Overview

Clemenceau Icefield

Overview

Trip Reports:

When:

Week 1: Sunday July 19 -  Sunday July 26
Week 2: Sunday July 26 -  Sunday August 2
Week 3: Sunday August 2 - Sunday August 9  (TBC)
(There is an option for a 3rd week but only if Weeks 1 and 2 are full)

Where:

Clemenceau Icefield

'The Clemenceau Icefield is one of the most remote and spectacularly rugged mountaineering destinations in the Canadian Rockies.  Located on the BC side of the Continental Divide'. (Bill Corbett- The 11000ers of the Canadian Rockies)

'The mountains of the Clemenceau area are the most remote peaks described in the book' (Selected Alpine Climbs).

Mt Clemenceau is one of only 4 12000 foot peaks in the Rockies!

Base: The plan is to camp at GR333-837.  An elevation of 2143m.  This is all to be confirmed and the final decision will be made on the first helicopter flight in on 19 July.

Staging Area: The staging area will be 100+k along the Sullivan River on the B road. 

Information:

Maps: Clemenceau Icefield 83 C/4

Guide books: The 11000ers of the Canadian Rockies - Bill Corbett

Selected Alpine Climbs - Sean Dougherty

Potential Objectives:

Pic Tordu 3210m

Mt Clemenceau 3658m

Mt Shackleton 3330m

Duplicate Mtn 3150m

Who:

For Week 1 and 2 we'll have 12 (max) Calgary Section Members per week.
Week 3 has not yet been posted, but we do have the option to run a 3rd week if we have enough takers.

The camp is self-guided, self-catered and self managed.  Most, if not all routes will involve glacier travel, so participants should have knowledge of crevasse rescue techniques.

After June 1 the camp will be opened up to other Sections.

How Much:

The price for the trip is $875 (final costs will depend on helicopter costs and the number of attendees).    The cost of this year's camp is higher than in previous years.  However, this is the price to pay for quick/convenient accesss into a remote and spectacular area which also happens to be home to a 12000er.

How to Sign Up:

In order to move from the waitlist to the confirmed registration list we must receive your application form and cheque for $875. The camp manager for the week you are applying will review your application and confirm your participation.

Please make cheques payable to ACC Calgary Section and send along with your application form to:
