Just starting a thread on the upcoming Matterhorn Peak climb (March 14-15). Please post any questions offers for ride share, etc.
Hi Doug. I will bring my Whisperlite stove, 1- person bivy, and shovel. If the rain fly of my 2- person, 4- season tent is repaired I will bring. Thanks for the tips on getting conditioned. Do you have a .gpx route (s) to share with us?
I will be leaving San Ramon after work on Friday, March 14th if anyone wants to carpool.
Cool, I'll put you down as having a personal shelter at least and stove and shovel. Thanks. Here's a link to the route: https://caltopo.com/m/K63H
For some reason the server we use isn't letting me post a GPX...
Driving from Davis, I have a jetboil and tent 1 or 2 person that I could bring.
Wanted to see if I could get loaner semi-auto and ice axe if possible.
No problem, semi automatic crampons and one ice axe, I'll bring. Got you down for a stove as well.
I'll bring my 2-person 4-season tent (Mountain Hardwear EV2). I am OK with sharing it. I've got MSR Windburner stove, but canister stoves may not work well when it's cold.
Canisters should do fine for what we're doing so I'd bring it. I'll put you down for a stove and 2P tent. Thanks.
I’ll have a 4 season tent also that I’m bringing, it’s a 2p but it’s a little smaller. I’ll bring my pocket rocket burner and a 8oz fuel can. Looking forward to this trip, hope weather cooperates!
Driving up from LA on Thursday. Any other SoCal people want to carpool?
Anyone want to ice climb or ski on Friday or even after the trip? Will try to BC or resort ski or ice climb in Lee Vining weather permitting one day.
I have a REI Quarter Dome. Small three season, 2-person tent. A jetboil, but it sounds like you all have better tents and stoves than I. I'll have it the car just in case.
I'm bringing my BC skis to skin up and ski down as much of the route as I can. Sounded like there was one other that was bringing skis as well.
Will be fun!
