Great straight forward scramble.  A few notes:

1.  Must be in shape!!!  We will be moving at a solid pace.  You should be able to do Mt. Si with a 20lb pack in 1:45.  Please do not request if you cannot do this.  When you request, please list your RECENT conditioners/climbs.

2.  Expectation to have fun and be flexible.

3.  We will go only if we the weather looks like it will hold.  Right now Saturday looks good, but rain moving in on Sunday.
