hey - this is a fun scramble to a nice peak with a view. we did this last year and had a blast. this year we will do a non-tradional approach (following an old trail that starts near exit 42) as the road to the traditional approach is washed out. our approach will add some gain to the trip. we will have navigation expert bill fortney as our assistant leader (let's not get lost :>) students are encouraged to sign up. this trip is approximately 9 miles with 4200' of gain.
