This is a strenuous 4-day climb involving moving an average of 10 miles a day with a full pack. Participants need to be in excellent physical condition and will be asked about prior climbs and/or conditioning regimen before being added to the climb. The pace will be 2.5 miles per hour or 1200-1400 feet an hour. I am listing the climb for 5 days, but as we see the weather window a few days out we will pick the best 4 day stretch.
