Remote Hut, Exclusive Guide and an Impressive Alpine Objective...

Mt Fox may be ab it harder toget to than iconic rogers pass peaks such as Sir Donald but that doesn't make it any less magnificent. In fact it's great because you will likely be the only ones out there. This trip is our most technical camp for the summer. Are you and a friend wanting to go up a large Selkirks Peak, have a private guide and get an exclusive booking in a remote alpine cabin? 

We are setting you up for success with this trip planned over 4 days. The first day will involve a beautiful hike up the Asulkan Valley followed by 8 kilometeres of maze like route finding over the Illiceleweat Glacier into the next valley over. Here you will find the remote Glacier Circle Cabin that wou will call home for the next threee nights.

Having 2 full days in the area allows the group to take advantage of the best weather window and climb Mt Fox. The other day can be spent exploring the area or climbing a smaller peak in the area depending on the wishes of the group.

The final day will be spent heading back over the glacier and back into civilization. This is a trip for people who are fit and have basic climbing and glacier skills. We are stoked to be putting this camp on for the first time this summer and hope to see you in the mountains.

Camp Objectives

Visit and enjoy with your own group, the superb remote Glacier Circle Cabin.

Cross the magnificent Illecillewaet Icefield (over 8 km hiking on a superb glacier surrounding by magical peaks like Sir Donald) and drop down to this beautiful remote valley where Glacier Circle Cabin is located.

Climb the impressive and remote Mount Fox with the help of local ACC Guide Fred Amyot.

An exclusive guide gives you time to learn new skill sand ask questions.

Enjoy this very remote cabin, the real and pure wilderness.

Explore the surrounding of the Devil group. Spend two nights at Glacier Circle before making the journey back to civilization.

Food, Accommodation and Guiding

Food

To keep the cost of this course as low as possible for participants, food will not be provided as part of the course.If you like us to arrange food we can do so for $45/person through the backcountry food provider Peakeats.

Accommodation

Accommodation will be at the Glacier Circle Cabin. One few people can claim to have been to due to its remoteness and glacier travel knowledge required to get there.

Guiding

Our guiding ratio will be a maximum of 2:1 to give you plenty of one-to-one learning time with our excellent guides. The small groups also mean that you can split up based on objectives and pacing, and get the individualized attention needed to tackle more challenging alpine rock routes.  

We will provide a local alpine guide knowledgeable in the area with experience to cater to your group's needs.
