Preference given to Olympia students. Must be comfortable on 3rd class rock with moderate exposure. NW Forest Pass needed in each car. This is mostly off trail. The 'trail' in the lower section is primitive and unmaintained. This is a strenuous scramble but well worth it with views of the Olympics, Cascades and Puget Sound lowlands if the weather cooperates. We will be bringing a rope for a fixed line if needed so you will need harness, prusiks and carabiners in addition to helmet, ice axe and 10 essentials.
