2017 Summer ACC Camp

2-1 Weeks camps available.       Week 1- July 23-29         Week 2- July 29-Aug5

THE CAMP

The camp will be in the Nemo Glacier area, in the Selkirk Mountains, S.W. of Golden, B.C. The area is spectacularly beautiful, heavily glaciated, and has numerous mountaineering objectives - including several peaks over 10,000’ high, including Mazinaw Mountain and Nautilus Mountain. Numerous other peaks provide all kinds of mountaineering objectives. All of the peaks are lovely granite! (a week’s break from crumbly limestone). Our base camp for
each week will be right beside a beautiful lake right below a glacier, at about 7,200’ – with spectacular views of glaciers, peaks and icefalls! The climbs start from about only 10 minutes from camp! All participants (and their gear) will be flown into (and out of) our camp, which would normally be an awful 2-3 day walk!
 

Difficulty
This area is perfect for beginning mountaineers, and some instruction (and/or review) of basic mountaineering skills will provided by our guides and amateur leaders. While participants do not necessarily have to have previous mountaineering experience to enjoy this week, it would be very helpful for people to have at least some scrambling and basic rope handling experience
before this camp. The ascents will be primarily on snow and ice, and will involve glacier travel, with some movement on rock towards the top of some peaks. For participants who wish to organize independent rope teams, there are lots of opportunities for more demanding objectives, including alpine ice climbing objectives. Summits and/or traverses will involve rugged terrain and/or significant distances, undertaken with typical mountaineering packs. Therefore, a good
level of fitness will be required. Participants are encouraged to come physically prepared by training beforehand, including a combination of aerobic training and/or strength training.
