CANCELED Heart Mountain S5 Winter Scramble

Heart Mountain Winter Scramble

You will be moved to attending list once the organizer determines that this Scramble is suited for you. To be considered for this trip, please answer the RSVP question.

Distance: 12 km

Elev. gain: 875 meters

Time required: 5 - 6 hours be prepared for longer we are in the Canadian Rockies

Difficulty Rating: S5-Winter Scramble

Hike Description: If you love great views and are into a little scrambling this one’s for you. Mind you, for the first 2-3 kilometers you will have your nose to the grindstone getting up to the ridge. There are no switchbacks here as the trail goes straight up one of the ribs of Heart Mountain to gain the ridge. The ridge walk is highly rewarding although the hike out of the horseshoe can be a bit of a workout with snow and ice even more so. No one who hasn’t done at least several scrambles  will be accepted on this trip..

Required Gear: Rock helmet, micro spikes, backpack min 30 litres suggested , sturdy hiking boots good for winter conditions, mitts/gloves, toque, gaiters, hiking poles, sunglasses layered clothing, wind proof jacket, headlamp with extra batteries, food and water.

Suggested passenger commuting costs: $15.00 for gas per person and in cash.

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.
