Food Canister Requirement in Boston Basin

July 01, 2013 Posted by: Climbing Rangers

 Animal resistant food canisters now required in Boston Basin, at all bivi sites in the Basin (not required on the high bivis such as on the Torment-Forbidden Traverse). Black bears have been observed in Boston Basin and around Sahale Glacier Camp (7600') in recent years. Bears have also been observed on glaciers in the past. Proper food storage is required for all visitors in the backcountry, including climbers. Rangers will be checking and enforcing this regulation in Boston Basin and all other areas of the Park. Ask rangers for advice regarding food storage when acquiring a permit for your climb.
