Scheduled Course - Toledo Peak West Ridge Alpine Climb

Toledo Peak Alpine Climb:

Combine ice axe and crampon training with climbing a spectacular, rugged, mixed rock and snow alpine climb along the well-protected West Ridge.

Description:

This 2,000-foot ascent involves an approach from Alta, usually on snowshoes or skis. Along the way, guide will teach a snow mountaineering skills session. This includes use of ice axe for self-belay and climbing in control on steep, firm snow. Self-arrest with ice axe will also be taught.

Upon reaching the rocky West Ridge of Toledo, the guide will lead a series of chimneys and rocky ridge pitches culminating in a spectacular 10,500-foot Wasatch summit.

Participants will learn mixed rock and snow climbing, usually in crampons, and removal of rock protection and anchors. Descent is to the east down Toledo Bowl on foot, glissade, snowshoes or skis. Maximum ratio is 3 clients per guide.
