About the event
You'll be meeting your guides at 8AM. This is a parking area near the highway close to the bottom of the canyon. Your guides will be there with equipment and we will get shoe/waist sizes in advance for the event.
If we are unable to use Clear Creek for this event we'll head to the backup location in Cheyenne Canyon at 8AM.
-Waterproof jacket and pants. Ski pants are fine but they tend to have wide cuffs that can get punctured by crampons. If you've got an old pair you don't care about or some people will even grab a cheap pair at the thrift store.
-Insulating jacket. A couple fleeces layered can be alright but a puffy, warm jacket is nice when you're belaying or just hanging out.
-Long underwear. Depending on how cold out it is this may not be necessary but I like to put it on the list.
-Gloves. I usually bring several pairs. A thin climbing pair, a thick belaying pair, and a pair of mittens in case something gets wet or my hands get cold.
-Protective eyewear. If people have sunglasses or prescription lenses this is fine. A pair of common safety glasses or ski goggles will also work.
-Hat, just a thin hat is nice since helmets don't provide a ton of insulation.
-Lunch, nobody wants to climb hungry.
While your time out is not super long please avoid cotton because once it's wet it just sucks the heat away from your body. Neither location is remote but hypothermia can really mess up the day.
Details will be sent directly to partipants enrolled closer to the event.
