KMC Climbing Camp: Battle Range Houston Lake July 24-31

13 Jun 2010

Location:
The 2010 KMC Climbing Camp will be located at Houston Lake in the Melville Group of the Battle Range, about 50 km southwest of Golden in the Southern Selkirks.

Dates: July 24 - July 31, 2010.

Camp Overview:
We will helicopter into a camp at Houston Lake on the south side of the impressive Proteus/Moby Dick massif: 712-430 82K/14 (NAD27) at around 6650 feet. The Moby Dick massif is well known for its excellent rock, and this location offers access to many fine routes on Moby Dick, Proteus, Benito Cereno, White Jacket, Harpoon, Escalade, Billy Bud, and Claggart. Almost all routes involve at least 4th class rock climbing, with many excellent routes rated in the low- to mid-fifth class range. Most routes involve some glacier travel.

Camp is now open to non-member of the KMC.
