Will attempt an alternate route from below Lake Laura and Lake Lillian. We'll scramble up to Rampart Lakse and across the ridge to Alta and back. Expect both rock and snow on the approach and descent. Bring helmet, ice ax, hasty harness-prussik-carabiner, and crampons (don't expect to use them, but I'd like to have them around). 12 miles and 4200 ft gain. Let's meet at the North Bend Starbucks near the clock tower in the Safeway Plaza at 7:00, condense riders and continue another 40 minutes or so to the trailhead. Please let me know what you've scrambled this year when requesting permission.
