This is a 2-day 1-night scramble, camping on snow.
This is Easter weekend.
MicroSpikes or Crampons will probably be required.
Snowshoes will probably be required.
We'll camp Sat night on our way to the summit.
There's a full moon Sat night.

We'll only do this trip if the avalanche conditions are safe and if the weather forecasts are friendly (friendly = no storms, no high winds, no rain at camp, and no single-digit temps). If the trip is canceled then there won't be an alternate destination.

This peak is normally climbed in a day but we'll do it as an overnight because snowcamping is fun!  :)

More trip info will be posted here soon.
