4pm at Exit 47 off I-90. We will convoy to the trailhead which is couple miles up the forest road.

We will scramble up NW ridge. It is steep, unmaintained trail that leads to a boulder field that leads to the summit. Due to the steepness of  that trail and limited daytime, please make sure you are in shape for that scramble before signing up and be comfortable hiking after sunset.

If weather cooperates, we will have beautiful 360 degree views of surrounding mountains. The trip will get cancelled if heavy rain or winds are in the forecast.

We will follow Mountaineers Covid-19 Code of Conduct during the trip
