Participant Information

Big day to the summit at around 2,208 m. Expect some light bushwhacking once we're off the road, and variable snow and conditions, over a variety of big terrain. Possible 12-hr day. Before signing up, please understand the route, conditions, and your equipment and ability for a trip like this. Have at least AST 1 and the related emergency equipment. Note that significant glacier travel is involved and we'll be equipped for that as well, although we'll be choosing the flatter stretches while on ice and avoiding the heavily crevassed sections. Details to be discussed in forum. Thanks
