Meet in Leavenworth Fri evening @ 8pm, to camp in the back yard of a local resident and wake at 5am for an early start.

This destination has high reward, overlooking Mt Stuart & the Enchantments area.

Leader may pre-select up to 3 Everett scrambling students prior to registration opening date of May 21.
