i have had my eyes on this peak for a long time and this sunday i am finally diving in and going for it. the cradle is something you can see from a lot of places and it will be fun to see what it looks like from the summit. the weather forecast shows 0% chance of rain. there is a lot of elevation gain ~7k and some walking ~12.5mi, so you need to be in great shape to do this.

if want a spot on this trip, please email me with your phone number and a list of some of your recent scrambles that have significant elevation gain.

fun is mandatory :>)
