Pub Nite: ‘Climbing the Continental Divide – Mt. Fay’ – Thu Apr 20 @ 7:30 pm

WHEN: Thurs Apr 20th @ 7:30 pm

WHERE: Imperial Pub, Back Room – 54 Dundas Street East, Toronto

TOPIC: In the summer of 2022, Yifei Yan and Michael Lawee climbed Mt. Fay in the Moraine Lake region spending two nights at Neil Colgan Hut, the highest permanent building in Canada. The approach to the hut involved a 6-8 hour hike, with great views along the way and two short technical climbs. The Neil Colgan Hut is an amazing destination alone due to its unique position and mountain views, even for those who choose not to climb Mt. Fay. The climb from the hut to the summit is easy, with some exposed sections in between and a relaxing walk at the summit plateau. Join us at Pub Nite as Yifei recounts one of his two most recent adventures.

BIO: Yifei started outdoor activities in 2019 and went headfirst into mountaineering by the summer of 2020. Although spending most of his time in Toronto, he makes sure to make time for larger climbing trips during the summer. Recently, he attempted some alpine objectives and multi-pitches in the Canadian Rockies; three of his favorites so far are Eisenhower Tower, Grand Sentinel, and Mt. Fay. While in Toronto, Yifei stays busy with cragging, indoor gym climbing, and cardio training in preparation for the mountains. He is always looking to meet people with similar interests.
