Various P&Rs to accommodate attendees, then 6am at the White River entrance for a last use of restrooms.  We will then caravan a short distance to the Fryingpan Creek trailhead (which fills up quickly).

A great moderate snow scramble with jaw dropping views.  This will be a loop trip, with ascent by way of the east ridge, and descent by traveling cross country to intersect the Wonderland Trail just below summerland.  Photos from past trips can be seen  here.
