To be determined.  This will depend on where everyone is coming from, but ideally we'll all catch the ferry to Kingston that leaves Edmonds at 6:20 am.

The slope leading to the ridge faces north, so there may still be snow; don't forget your ice axe.  The pace will be moderate, but it will be a fairly strenuous trip.  Because the alpine vegetation near the summit is so fragile, I'm limiting this trip to only 6 scramblers.
