Participant Information

My first trip to organize, so bear with me.

Original plan is to park at exit 221 on Hwy 5 (same location to go to Zoa), climb Thar, descend south to the bowl between Nak and Thar, go back to saddle, descend north-west to Falls lake, cross it,  find the summer trail through trees back to parking.

Plan off course may change depending on the group dynamics, time elapsed, avi condition, etc. Group decision making.

I had been to Thar this season, we came back via south slope. Quite steep ascent; and a shoot on the north side.

I would enjoy intermediate pace, not too slow.

Bring your satellite beacon devices, if you happen to have any.

Recommended carpooling cost:  approx. $20 per passenger; please arrange with driver; bring funds.
