Crampon and Self-Arrest Workshop

June 1st, 2019

~ submitted by Matthew Lettington

On June 7th a group of four ascended to the saddle between Mount Cokely and Mount Arrowsmith to practice using crampons and mountaineering axes. Despite the sun breaking through the clouds we had good conditions for our practice.

After two hours of sliding on our butts — head first, backwards and upside down! — we continued to the saddle and returned to the vehicles via Rosseau Ridge to check off that Ridge Rambler objective. 

Way to go folks!
