Primarily intended for Alpine Climbing School Group B4. Email trip leader for passcode.


Priority for this trip will be given to 20121 ACS students who have completed all of the requirments to go on a High Peak Climb.

Sunday morning we will climb the East Ridge of Mt Bancroft.

Climb: The ridge starts out as moderate rocky slopes, and steepens as it approaches the notch at 12,300 feet. Rap the notch and then climb the 5.2 route out of the notch. Continue up the ridge along rocky ridges and grassy areas that alternate with class 4 moves on rock towers. We need to be careful with routefinding to reach the crest of the ridge at 13,000 feet. A walk across talus fields will then bring us to the summit.

We will descend the gentle southeast ridge.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
