Please read the entire description.
I'd like to do a re-attempt of Mount Remus. I made it to the summit block roughly a week ago but it was late and I had to find a suitable route down.
This will be an amazing trip full of a little bit of everything. There is an 8KM approach by bike, at about 6.5KM in we must carry bikes across a thigh deep river where a bridge was washed out in June. When we reach the end of the bike trip, we will stash our bikes and cross another creek (not quite knee high this time).
At this point we will stash creek crossing / bike gear and start the hike up. Depending on route here we could be scree bashing all day or we could go into more technical scrambling to get to the summit block. Once at the summit block, there is a chimney to climb and this is the difficult scrambling section.
As with all my trips, there is a mandatory waiting list. I decide who goes based on answers to questions. If you RSVP without answering, you don't go.
Anyone set to going that backs out after RSVP's are closed gets marked as no-show.
Anyone that shows up without required gear will be left behind.

Real-time tracking while we're out, feel free to share with emergency contacts. Be aware this is not always 100% and authorities shouldn't be called because it misses a few updates.
Waivers: As per the new policy for waivers; I will bring the group waiver form with me to both the Calgary Meetup location and the trailhead. You must sign it before you will be allowed to go on this hike. You will also be asked to provide the name and phone number of an emergency contact. You are fully aware that organizers are not professional guides and you assume all responsibility for your safety and well-being. You are fully prepared with proper gear and you're physically fit to do this hike with the group.
