**Prefer ICS-trained climbers!!
It will be helpful if applicants can list who your BCEP climb leader is/was, if you are new to climbing!!!! Will consider strong BCEP graduates, if I have strong recommendation from your BCEP leaders.
For non-ICS graduate, crevasse rescue training is mandatory, if you wish to be considered for this climb!
Be mindful this is a mixed glacier and 4th class rock climb/scramble, a bit more challenging than the Sulphide Glacier route. The route will join the Sulphide route on the summit pyramid. This route is the one most often seen on photographs of Lake Ann. The Shuksan summit pinnacle is known for rockfalls.
You must have good physical fitness to be active all day in the mountains, multiple days in a row. You should be comfortable at heights and with exposure.
You must be comfortable with loose rocks and multiple rappelling stations on this route. The decision whether to fix line or to do a 4th class scramble is dependent on our comfort level and risk appetite.
Times: Estimated 2-3 hr trailhead to camp, 7-8 hr camp to summit.
