Participant Information

This is a very underrated area with amazing views and this would be my first time there.

There is a bit of scrambling involved, but quite mellow. If you are afraid of heights, don't join the trip.

A bit of bushwhacking would be required as well, plus there is NO trail per say, maybe some random flags in the forest and then nothing: you must be comfortable with this kind of terrain(including tons of loose scree...). 

The road should be drivable in any car, but ideally you have at least an AWD, not a very low clearance car.

Please be considerate and do not sign up unless you are 100% committed for the trip and you are in very good physical condition. 

Will be moving at a fast pace. Not for slow people, sorry.

MUST have :

  • Food and water(there is no source of water up there) for the whole day
  • Helmet
  • First aid kit!
  • Bear spray
  • Hiking poles (even if you think you don't need them, bring them anyway)
Distance: 15km
Elevation Gain: 2100m
Summit area 2596m
Estimated Time: 11-12hrs
