Preference given to Olympia scrambling students until August 17 "open registration" date/time. We'll all be driving to the trailhead individually to comply with the current Mountaineers COVID-19 guidelines. This trail is steep and somewhat relentless so we'll moderate our pace to keep from burning out our calf muscles. Bring your harness (or equivalent) + prussiks/carabiners as there is a catwalk section that may make you desire a fixed line. Helmets are required.
