Avalanche Peak - Heat & Dehydration
We have been experiencing extremely hot conditions on the mountain. It is advised to carry at least 3 litres of water per person to avoid dehydration issues! It is recommended to start your climb no later than 11am to avoid the heat of the day, and prevent SAR operations if necessary running into the night!
