This weekend, we were back to hone those skills as we are about to head of the the Alpine Club of Canada's General Mountaineering Camp. The weather was gorgeous, the hiking spectacular, the camp site awesome. In short, we had the perfect weekend.
|Jan on top of Saddleback (4,515 feet).|
|"Precipitous down climb" on way from |
Saddleback to Basin Mountain. When the
guidebook says this and adds "extreme
caution" there's a reason.
|Massive new slide due to Hurricane Irene |
last September. Nature is awe-inspiring in
its sheer force.
|View of Basin Mountain. We summitted|
it, too (4,827 feet), and then
backtracked to Orebed camping
