TBD - will finalize plans no later than Wednesday. But we'll do our best to carpool, with the intent of meeting at Esmeralda TH around sunrise.

Right now, it looks like there might be a clearing in the weather, but that can change in a hurry. Depending on the forecast, I might switch this to a Kangaroo Temple, or a similar climb.
