Meet at the Dickerman Mountain TH parking lot @ 7:15 AM.  From there we will consolidate to two vehicles for the drive in to starting point.

This is a seldom climbed mountain, so there is minimal bata.  Expect some periods of heavy brush, creek crossings, step hard snow, and potential route-finding challenges.  However the views of the other Mountain Loop Peaks are spectacular.
