Lets meet at Martin Way Park and Ride Thursday afternoon June 16th at 2:00 pm where we'll group up to car pool over the the Teannaway area. Forest Service Rd 9737 is washed out at mile 6.7. The current recommendation is for high clearance vehicles to get past a couple smaller washouts. This may be fixed before we attempt our climb but we must plan for now to pack in 2.3 miles Thursday evening past the washout and camp at the trail head.    

First preference given to Olympia Basic climbing students needing rock credit.

Friday will be our climb day.

I'll update Snow information as we get closer.

Lets plan to be on the trail at 5:30 am 

Friday evening we'll pack out to the cars and head home.
