  • Basic Alpine Climb
5:00 AM at Icicle Creek
Preference given to Tacoma students, grads, and instructors. The climb will be at a fast pace and it will be strenuous due to elevation gain, distance, and the high snow pack this year. Participants must be in good condition, especially students who are planning on doing the Rock II field trip the next day. If the party is so inclined we may also summit Dragontail. Some members of the party may ski down if there are enough of each group to make the descent safe for each. The climb will not happen if the weather looks unpleasant as the leader is a weather sissy.
