This is a very strenuous outing.  I will prefer Basic Grads but some very strong Basic Students may be allowed to join.  This is NOT a climb to simply check off graduation requirements.

You must provide evidence of fitness via a resume (climbing, scrambling, backpacking)

Everett Students get priority until May 7th.  Bulger frontrunners welcome as well (you know who you are).

PLEASE NOTE:  This will be a four day climb but I am listing a 6 day date range so we can pick the best weather window to be successful.
