Meet at the northeast end Longmire parking lot (nearest the Ranger Station) at 7:00AM.

We'll follow the Eagle Peak trail to the saddle between Chutla and Eagle. From the saddle, we'll scramble to the top of Eagle then descend back to the saddle for the scramble to the top of Chutla. If time and conditions are favorable we will also attempt Wahpenayo Peak. 

The park is reporting 70% snow cover on the trail as of mid April so bring snow shoes, crampons and micro spikes and we'll make a decision at the trailhead as to the appropriate traction devices.

Here are links to an excerpt from the Guide to 100 Peaks for these three peaks as well as the weather forecast for the area.
