True Patriot Love's Barbeau Expedition 2023
True Patriot Love’s Barbeau Expedition
The True Patriot Love Foundation expedition to Barbeau Peak supported Canada’s military community by attempting to summit Mount Barbeau. Located on Ellesmere Island in Quttinirpaaq National Park, Barbeau Peak is Canada’s most isolated peak and at 8,583 feet (2,616m) the highest mountain in Nunavut, the Canadian Arctic, and all eastern North America. With razor thin edges and deep crevasses, this unique and extremely remote location creates an adventure not soon forgotten.
Encountering unforeseen bad weather after reaching camp 1, our team made the difficult decision to turn around and prioritize safety. However, their spirits remained high throughout the journey back to Lake Hazen. Even amidst the challenges, our resilient team managed to achieve something amazing! They successfully conquered an unnamed peak in the range, marking a remarkable first ascent!
We want to express our deepest gratitude to all the generous sponsors and donors who supported this expedition. Together, we have surpassed our initial fundraising goal of $500,000! Your unwavering support has made a significant impact on our mission.
Thank you for the sponsors,
Canadian National Railway Company
