Sky Pilot – 2021-06-26

June 26th 2021


Description:

Climb Sky Pilot via standard route.

Sorry need to move to June 26

We can hike up from the Chief parking lot since the Sea to Sky Gondola now charges $56 and I think it will be very crowded on Saturday morning.

I’d like to climb Ledge too if we have time.

I copied this from the BCMC trip that is scheduled for the same day:

We’ll be crossing the lower portion of the Stadium Glacier to gain the west ridge, so expect steep snow and small crevasses. The glacier is fairly small so will not be roping up to cross it. Climbing the ridge requires significant amount of scrambling with some exposed 4th/ low 5th class portions. Ideally we’d like to have a 30m rope on had for possibly rappelling down the pink slab. If you have one, please let me know! Saves us from bringing our bulky climbing ropes.

Bring a helmet, ice axe, and crampons.

I’ll be bringing a first aid kit and headlamp, and recommend that others do as well.

Friends have been up there recently and have reported variable snow conditions (soft, wet, unstable) so prepare for that.
