mountaineering - cold fusion couloir (north timp) - May 6, 2023

We plan to do a day climb to North Timpanogos (11,441 ft) via Cold Fusion Couloir. Expect an early start and a long day (10-12 hours). 12 miles RT with 4,883 ft gain. The slope has a steep part (40 degrees). I have done this route before. Participants must have excellent stamina and skills to travel on the steep slope with crampons, and know how to self-arrest using an ice axe and to use avalanche safety gear. Participants must bring a climbing helmet, crampons, mountaineering boots compatible with your crampons, ice axe, snowshoes, poles with a snow basket, and avalanche safety gear (beacon, probe & shovel). There may be additional required gear depending on conditions. This activity will focus on training for upcoming mountaineering trips (e.g. Hood, Baker). If the conditions are not favorable for Cold Fusion Couloir, we will go to a nearby peak/bump such as Mahogany Mt (9001 ft). For more details, please contact the organizer). Limit 6. WMC members only.
