TBD.   

The route is known for loose rock and the rappels can be especially dangerous.  We will stay overnight and climb Magic as well.

Preference given to Basic Grads, especially those with experience climbing or scrambling loose rock.  

NOTE:  if I do not climb Easy Mox by this weekend, I will be changing the climb venue to a 3 day Chilliwacks trip.

 Please let me know you read these leader notes by describing your comfort-level and experience on loose rock and that you underestand the venue may change to Chilliwacks.
