Be ready to start hiking from the trailhead at 5:00 am. I will likely be staying at the trailhead Friday night

Priority will be given to Intense Basic students until September 21, 2018. At that point I will open it up to everyone.

Rope lead priority will be given to past Intense Basic students who are now Intermediate Students and qualified to lead multi pitch rock.

Nathan is in charge, email him.  If you are sending a "leader permission" request, make sure you email it to Nathan.  If you send it to Rob (which the website does auotmatically) it will most likely get ignored.
