PLEASE READ ALL BEFORE REQUESTING PERMISSION:

All participants must be fully vaccinated for covid. If accepted, you will have to email me an image of your vaccination card (birthday blocked out if you wish). I will do so in return. Do not do so unless you are accepted.

This trip requires a long drive (approx. 8 hrs) each way and a great deal of planning. If you want to go and you are accepted, I expect a serious commitment; in other words, do not cancel unless you have an emergency situation. NOTE: I will cancel the trip due to inclement weather or wildfires in the area.

Matterhorn is not technically difficult.  However, participants MUST have backpacking experience. If you have not successfully completed a Mountaineers backpacking trip, please describe your experience when you request permission. No exceptions. This is a unique trip, and I want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable experience.
