Rampart's SE ridge approach offers a variety of scenery, including a very steep waytrail, heather and tarns, followed by a final short but challenging rock scramble. Since this is an After Hours trip, about 2500 ft of gain and 7 miles, the pace will be steady with only 1 brief break at Lake Lillian. Headlamps will be used for much of the descent. Meeting point is Exit 20 off I-90 where carpools will be arranged, with departure promptly at 4:30 or earlier if all are present.
