We'll meet at the Ingalls Way (#1390) TH at 6am. It looks like the forest road is still closed to the actual trailhead which will add about 1 mile on either end of the climb. More details via email.

This is a really fun Alpine Rock Climb that can easily be done in one day. Weather looks great for Sunday. 

Please send me an short email with what you've done so far this summer (hiking, climbing, backpacking etc) and a couple of references (your SIG leader, other climb leaders...)
