Several new and returning WP/WBO staff got together for 5 days on rock and snow for some serious technical skills training.

  • Day 1: Training Goals and Expectations. Rock anchor clinic at Hartman Rocks
  • Day 2: More rock anchors, ground school, risk management and climbing in Taylor Canyon
  • Day 3: Travel into Baxter Basin in the Paradise Divide area above Crested Butte. Snow travel, ice axe use and camp set up. We summited Cascade Peak in the afternoon.
  • Day 4: Travel into Augusta Basin, climb Augusta and Mineral Point, descend into Poverty Gulch
  • Day 5: Climb Purple Mountain. We turned around just shy of the summit due to softening snow conditions. Debrief at the van and bon voyage.
