7:00 am at the Horseshoe Bend trail head, at the east end of the town of Glacier, on the right immediately after SR 542 crosses the Nooksack River. This parking lot is across the street from the entrance to the Douglas Fir campground, where I will be staying in site #9.

Our first objective is to scramble Lasiocarpa Ridge. If we have time, we will also climb Coleman Pinnacle on the way down.  Participants in this scramble have priority for signing up for my scramble of Mount Ann and Mount Annette for Tuesday and can stay with me at the Douglas Fir campground in the town of Glacier.
