Participant Information

The pace will be moderate but steady.  Please read the available descriptions (Bivouac, for example) before signing up.  This is an arduous trip.  Exposure and steep snow climbing.  Quite technical, not like Baker.  You will need to be comfortable with a 40 degree running belay and exposed class four scrambles.  This is not your first or second climb.  I need team members who can help with route finding and decision making.  Early start Saturday and alpine start for Summit Sunday.  

Day 1:  7.6 km and 1000m elevation to camp at 2150 m.

Day 2:  2.2 km 700 m to summit, then 10 k back to parking

Glacier travel gear, picket with runner, helmet, rope, crampons, you should know the drill...

I will will post a google sheet for gear and ride coordination.  Trip details subject to change.
