This will be a loop trip, starting on the Spray Park trail. After climbing Hessong Rock and Mt. Pleasant, we will traverse toward Knapsack Pass; depending on conditions and how we feel we can do any or all of Fay Peak, First Mother Mountain, or Castle Peak, before returning to the lake. There should be enough snow on the north side of Pleasant to make this count as a snow scramble; bring ice axe and helmet.
