This is a remote and extremely strenuous alpine trip intended as a heartfelt thank you to the folks I've encountered on high end winter scrambles. These folks appreciate the importance of frequent and ongoing strenuous alpine trips to ensure a safe and enjoyable time on trips like this one. If I didn't see you this past winter (2015-2016) and would like to attend future trips like these, please consider joining us for training trips in late fall and winter of 2016-2017.
