Basic Alpine Climbing Course SIG event. This is actually to 'North Eagle Peak at 5984 feet' which involves a traverse from the Eagle Peak trail at ~4700'. Changed from Mount Wow due to excessive snow making Wow's long approach problematical. Bring snowshoes and gear for Basic Rock Climb to practice running belays and use of fixed line on rocky rib leading to summit.
