  • Technical 3, Strenuous 3
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,500 ft

We will meet at the trail at 5 pm, ready to go by 5:15 pm.  Details coming.

This is a long trip with a lot of elevation gain, so plan to be moving at a quick pace most of the trip. We will take a decent break on the summit.  Bring treats and your camera. If the rock is wet we will not go. The short scramble to the summit has a lot of exposure.
