This past July the Explorer Post traveled with eight students, ages 16-19, and three advisors, to a remote area of the Canadian Purcell Range. We camped on the edge of the Conrad Icefield and stayed there for one week. The team climbed seven mountains, including Mt. Conrad, 10,750’ (named for Conrad Kain), Mt. Mallow, Mt. Osprey and Snafflehound Spire. We brought our Moki™ and a couple of Morpho AR’s™, as you can see from the photos. The tents worked really well, thank you for the kind donation!
Explorer Post 58 is based in Portland, Oregon. The Post is the most active youth mountaineering organization in the country. We climb about 20 mountains each year and sponsor trips to Canada, Alaska and New Zealand. We also participate in approximately 20 other non-mountaineering trips each year.
