We will meet at the Trailhead at 8:30 a.m. Most participants are likely to be spending the night before as part of the Foothills Compressed Alpine Scrambling Class.  If warranted, a prior meeting spot may be identified for those that wish to carpool as we get closer to the event.

This is primarily a trip for Foothills Compressed Alpine Scrambling Course students who have successfully completed the experience filed trip. Others may sing-up after registration opens.

This location is dependent upon sufficient snow for Bill's Peak.  Other possible alternative  destinations (from the same trailhead) include: Teanaway, Iron or Bean.

PRO TIP: Save your front line hiking and climbing pants.  Bring an old pair of rain pants for glissading.
