The Lyells are located in the Rocky Mountains. This area has outstanding climbing possibilities at all levels of difficulty as well as a number of pleasant hikes. The base camp will be located in a magnificent setting at the headwaters Icefall Brook.

The camp is self-guided, self-catered and self-managed, therefore participants should have the requisite skills to contribute to a successful and safe Camp. Most, if not all routes will involve glacier travel, so participants should have knowledge of crevasse-rescue techniques. Also participants will be required to contribute to the Camp by accepting some pre/post Camp tasks and maybe some daily tasks/trip leading while there.

Camp access will be vehicle to somewhere close by to the staging area where we'll be flown in to base camp. To minimize helicopter costs, participants are restricted to 23 kgs (50 lbs) total gear, (including personal tent, clothing, food/drinks).  Large group cooking and storage tents, plus stoves and kitchen equipment are supplied.
