Participant Information

The route is as described in Alpine select.  The plan is to take the gondola up and catch it on the way down as well.  The pace will be quite fast and we will not rope up for any sections.  Although this is often described as a scramble, there is a short section that is 4th class or low 5th climbing.  Only sign up for this trip if you are quite fit and also comfortable climbing and down climbing 4th class terrain unroped.

There is a short section on a pocket glacier.  General mountaineering knowledge is required.  Bring helmet, ice axe and crampons.  It's going to be a hot one so be prepared with sunglasses, sunscreen and hat.
