Crowchild Tr NW, 53rd St exit, West end of CTrain station parking lot
We'll be doing Gap Peak via Bob Spirko's route. Click here to see Bob Spirko's trip report.
A climbing helmet will be required for this scramble. If you show up with any other type of helmet (bicycle, ski, hockey, hard hat, etc.) you will be sent home in shame.
To make sure I know who's coming and their general level of experience (none is required; I need to know for safety reasons), you can not sign up a guest. Everyone coming must sign up on their own. Please answer all questions during the RSVP process. If you don't I'll bump you to "Not Going" until you provide all the answers.
"Moderate" refers to the level of technical difficulty. The trail is all uphill, even on the way back. You need to be in good shape. Please be realistic about your ability to participate in physical activity of this nature.
Be prepared for cold, windy, snowy weather one minute, clear skies and sun the next. You should have a very full pack on this trip.
I've never done this trip, so it will be an adventure.
