8am at Paradise Visitor Center. You will need to purchase the entry to National Park or use America the Beautiful / MRNP annual pass to get there.

It's a less popular destination in Paradise area with beautiful views on the way and from the top. We are likely going to need crampons to get to the summit.  We will work together on navigation and route finding.

If weather does not cooperate, leader will try to come up with alternative destination.

We will follow Mountaineers Covid-19 Code of Conduct during the trip.
