In case the pun-based trip name was unclear, Recondite Peak is the most isolated 11,000+ ft. peak in the Canadian Rockies. Note that this trip is long but not particularly technical, dangerous, or exposed. There is one short, steep pitch (~5.4) protecting the summit, which can be soloed or rappelled.

Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons.
