The Monarch via Healy Creek E5: 12 July 2019

The group will depart from Banff to the Healy Creek trailhead on Friday afternoon (after work) for the walk into E5.  On Saturday, we will hang all non-critical gear and attempt The Monarch.  We will depart on Saturday after our attempt.  This trip can be done in a day but adding a night in the wilderness, we ensure a quicker start and approach with a more leisurely summit day.  Participants will be asked to make their campground booking with Parks Canada after registering.   This is an objective which may have a north facing gully clogged with snow and some other snow travel.  As such, crampons and an ice axe are necessary.
