destination changed to crater mt :>) the current plan is thor mt(pt 6804). thor is the highest point and most prominent peak in the area but for some reason was not named on the maps. it is much more prominent and taller than its two named westerly neighbors - thunder mt and surprise mt. it is a scramble starting from tunnel creek and said to have a great viewpoint from the top.

i estimate it to be 14+mi and ~4800' gain, so you need to be in sufficient shape to maintain a good pace for that distance and gain to enjoy the trip.

could get as technically hard as mountie t5, but i doubt it. therefore, no students.

destination subject to change

fun is mandatory!
