6.5 days traverse (August 1 to 8)
Unique volcanic mountain range in Northern BC.
Summer 2015 - Yukon
ACC - Icefield Discover Camp (May 23 to June 9)
During this ski touring/ski mountaineering camp in Kluane National Park with the St. Elias range as backdrop, I managed an ascent of Gnurdelhorn (~3,300 m) (glacier, snow, ice, rock) from the camp located at about 2,00 m. Other objectives included several nunataks, cols and ridges within 5 k from camp.
Donjek Route, Kluane (June 21 to 27)
6.5 days with Max of Terre Boreale.
September 2013 - Bolivia
We spent 4 weeks at altitude, with about 11 nights sleeping over 4,500 m. Acclimatization process worked perfectly for us. Our high points were:
- Pico Aguila summit (5,500 m /18,045') - mixed (snow, glacier, rock) - first ascent by women and established new route using the summit ridge.
- Illimani (5,500 m high camp - Nido de Condores)
- Chacaltaya summit (5,400 m /17,700') - ha, but really from the lodge it's merely 200 m elevation to the summit :)
- Mankilisani - to about 5,000 m brutal post-holing in hip-deep snow kept summit elusive
- Patapatani - got to about within 200 m elevation of its 5,400 m summit before thunderstorm hit
- Alpina Dome (2,696 m /8,845') - glacier, snow
- Citadel Mountain (2,923 m /9,590') - glacier, snow
- Silvertip Mountain (2,880 m /9,449') - glacier, mixed snow and rock
- Azimuth Mountain (2,563 m /8,408') - glacier, mixed snow and rock
- Pico Austria (~ 5,250 m = ~ 17,225') - rock
- Huayna Potosi (6,088 m = 19,974') - glacier and rock
Other high points achieved in the Andes are:
In October 2010, we trekked in Peru, achieving high passes up to 4,850 m (15,912')
In December 2007, a 5-day trek via Confluencia (3,300 m /10,827') and Plaza Francia (4,200 m /13,944') to Plaza de Mulas base camp (4,370 m /14,340') on Aconcagua.
