This is a basic climb but there will likely be a decent amount of approach and climbing on loose rock/sand, so please have a bit of comfort on rock before asking to join.  The roster is full and there are people on the wait list, but if you are interested in getting on the wait list send Nate ( alpine.nate.m@gmail.com) a note that includes any relevant climbing experience.
