NAVIGATION / ROUTE INFORMATION: In the interest of full disclosure, I have never done this trip before and am counting on everyone working as a team on navigation. This has worked well in the past, and I am confident we will be successful in our route finding if everyone comes prepared and participates :-) Please review and bring a copy of the route description and a map!
WEATHER: The forecast is for 50-60% chance of snow on the summits and at camp (this also means an equally high % of rain on the approach) and thunder.
