Fit and Fast trip covering a lot of elevation gain over 18 kms. Your quads and lungs will receive a rude awakening Saturday as the steep ascent to the ridge starts immediately.

We'll be taking the standard route so expect steep gullies near the end and exposure on the summit pyramid ramp. Route follows the Matt Gunn book description. GPS files from others are available online - I'll upload one tonight.

Considered Class 3.  Helmet is a must; ice axe might well be optional as the snow should be melted, however some might find comfort in dry tooling with it. Expect 8+ hours with limited rests until the summit. A brisk descent will get us back in town at a reasonable hour, or leave time for dinner on the way. Group decision day of.

Though I'm organizing, all participants must be able lead. If you sign up, please be researched and experienced enough to confidently lead the group. I'll be driving from Mt Pleasant and can pick up folks if along the route.
