Peaks and Passes Day 10: April 24

Expedition Itinerary Plan for Day 10:

We ascend an ablation valley beside the Dig Glacier to Kare, the basecamp area for Mera Peak. Camp (5000m).

Fun Fact of the Day

DID YOU KNOW?

Mera and Island Peaks are technically classified as “trekking peaks” rather than mountaineering peaks.

Today’s Activity: There’s an Everest Storm a’ Brewin’:

Jack Frost (Instructor) calls out actions and the students who do not complete the task fast enough become a minion of jack frost. Minions chase students that aren’t able to complete the task fast enough next round.

Actions:

Windward Gale: Students run to the front of the gym

Leeward Gale: Students run to the back of the gym

Avalanche: Back to back with a partner with hands over face

Nightfall: Huddle together in groups of four

Quicken the Pace: Act out climbing a rope up a cliffside

Icefall: Students duck and head towards a wall of the gym

Heavy snow: Students walk around the gym shielding their eyes as though                                                            they were walking through a storm

Did everyone enjoy the activity? How important was listening carefully? What is a Windward Gale? Leeward Gale? Did you help your classmates if they didn’t know the action?
