We will go to Florence's false summit first. And if conditions are not to icy we will head over to the true summit of Florence which is just NW of the false summit. Micro-spikes may be needed. We will then head back to Florence's false summit and proceed to Howard. On the return trip we will summit Sweet Peak a small peak just NW of Florence. Trip will be approximate 10-12 miles and 5,000' of gain and be about 10-12 hours. I have not summited any of these peaks before.
