I'm leading this climb as a Club Climb = Basic Graduates only. Sorry no Basic Climbing Course Students. Participants should have good scramble skills and be prepared to assist with navigation. I have not done this route before. Past Mountie trip reports indicate that summit day often takes longer that what is shown in the Basic Climbs guide. Please be prepared for a long second day plus a long drive home. Two participant spots are available. Registration opens online at 5:30 AM on Tuesday July 15. Advanced leader permission is not required.
