Participant Information

First off, I don't know the condition of Spetch Crk FSR, however we'll possibly need one more HC 4x4 if a full group. 

A reasonably early start on Saturday 'could' be preceded by a car camp on Friday for those willing & interested, though so far it doesn't seem necessary. Weather looks good and we can decide as logistics firm up. Will have a call Thurs night.

The plan is a fast-paced hike and scramble up Saxifrage and Cassiope over what will be a long day. Just not sure how long.

Gear required: helmet. Any snow will be too soft for an axe or crampies. 

If you have not been on a trip with me before, then you're fortunate to have been spared some terrible jokes and my deranged, lunatic ravings. However, it also means I should state that this will be best suited for experienced, and well-conditioned back country misfits. Your grind time or 10 km run time should consistently be under 1 hour. Matching up all participants' skills and capabilities means a safer, more enjoyable trip for all. You should be able to lead the trip if need be, so do the research and know what you're signing on for - I'm not your guide (although... for $100....)

Answer all of of the questions in the BC Covid-19 Symptom Assessment questionnaire:  https://bc.thrive.health/covid19/en.  Please provide your results in the screening questions.

The only affliction you should have is summit fever. Well, maybe trench foot too.
