This is a wonderful scramble up in the Monte Cristo area, with great scenery and views. Students are welcome. The pace has been listed as moderate, but will likely be slow-to-moderate. NOTICE: This is an 11 mile trip, and due to the vagaries of the route, it requires 10 hours to complete. So, while we will not be moving fast, ADEQUATE CONDITIONING is a necessity, so we can keep a steady pace. It is likely we will see some significant patches of snow. Ice axes and helmets are required.
