Snow Lake TH (Alpental Parking Lot), ready to walk at 6am.

This is a pre-work trip and we'll be going at a brisk pace. Participants need to be able to reach the top of Cableline (2000' in 1.75mi), with at 25# pack, in under 60 minutes.

We will take a quick break on the summit, but expect otherwise to be traveling the entire time. Bring water and food you can eat on the move.

I haven't been up this particular route before and I need all participants to have done route research ahead of time to make this an efficient trip.
