This is part of a 3 day trip. Roughly the plan is to meet at the Marblemount ranger station super early Friday morning, drive to the Eldorado TH, ascend to the base of the east ridge at 7800 and make camp then go to the summit. On Saturday we'll go to Austera Peak via Klawatti Peak (SW ridge up and North ridge down), on the way back we'll go over Klawatti Col. For Sunday we'll plan on climbing Dorado Needle via the Northwest ridge (5.4). That's a BR. If the group feels strong we might do a round trip going up the Southwest Buttress and down the Northwest ridge (5.7). You cannot come for only a part of this trip. The trip is not full at the moment. If I don't know you, please, send me a short resume of your recent climbs and how's the conditioning going. This trip is going to be quite demanding and is not recommended for people without prior experience. Otherwise it's going to be cool adventure.
