Our group of climbers and mentors has convened in Canmore, Alberta for a two-week climbing trip, and the psyche-level is definitely high. At our last meeting in January, we all built training plans to be in top physical shape for this trip. The crew is looking and feeling good and we decided to start with a classic ice route with a long approach: The Sorcerer. It's an important part of every trip to do a few shakedown climbs and get our systems running smoothly and adapt to the scale and character of climbing in a new place.
