Participant Information

Start from Cypress.

Finish near Porteau Cove.

Two days, one night, camp near Magnesia Meadows.

Early start on Saturday followed by a long day of summiting peaks. I'm open to missing some of the secondary peaks depending on the conditions. Sunday would be another early start with a lot of decline down to the Cove.
