20140418: Castleguard Mountain via Saskatchewan Glacier
Seven of us from K7 Climbing (Ray, Robert, Brandon, Mike, Jun, Morgan and me) decided to spend Easter long weekend on the glacier. The intent was to camp at the Big Bend parking lot Thursday night, head to base camp between Andromeda and Castleguard Friday, climb Andromeda Saturday and Castleguard Sunday combined with the 12k walk out. Unfortunately weather and avy conditions prevented us from attempting Andromeda, and conditions and visibility hampered our bid of Castleguard. We made it 400m from the Castleguard summit but… A good weekend nonetheless.
Because of the conditions we decided to head to Castleguard instead of Andromeda.
Due to lack of visibility we decided to turn around… And now that Andromeda is off the table, the consensus is to pack up and head home. Making that a total of around 34k in 2 days. There’s some talk of coming back in the fall…
