The General Mountaineering Camp, 2018
Put yourself at the forefront of exploration of a unique and beautiful alpine wilderness – this is the 2018 Hallam Glacier General Mountaineering Camp.
The ACC’s annual General Mountaineering Camp is set in a different remote location of western Canada’s mountains each summer. The camp operates on a seven day, Saturday to Saturday basis for six weeks in July and August. Fees include tent accommodation, mountain guiding and instruction, sumptuous meals, and all group climbing equipment.
The GMC typically sells out, so register early to avoid disappointment! See our GMC Overview Page for more information on our camp – a proud ACC tradition since 1906.
The Hallam Glacier General Mountaineering Camp
Our 2018 GMC is located below Hallam Peak in the Northern Monashees.
Going back to our first camp in 1906, the ACC’s GMC is steeped in history and the tradition of exploration. Join us for our 111th annual camp as we return to the remote ranges and continue to explore the summits, glaciers and hidden areas of Canada’s great mountains.
The 2018 GMC basecamp will be helicopter-accessed and will serve as our base for climbing in three major areas. The area is remote, the views are stunning and the peaks provide a variety of challenges for mountaineers just starting as well as for seasoned veterans.
