Evening scramble to the true summit of Bandera. Leader is recovering from a medical procedure, so please expect the pace to be casual. Appx. 3,400ft of gain, aiming to reach the top in ~3 hours, back to the cars between 9 and 9:30PM, before the twilight completely disappears on us.  That said, please make sure to bring your headlamp. 

If the weather stays like as nice as it has been, the views from the top should be pretty amazing!  However, if we get unlucky and it rains on the day-of, trip will be canceled since we have to cross a boulder field to get to the true summit.

Please review the current COVID-19 Code of Conduct.
