This is a moderate Alpine Climb / Rock Scramble. Priority is given to Basic Climb/Scramble students who need this one to graduate. Will need helmet, ice axe, climbing boots, commercial or webbing harness, 2+ locking biners & prussic and sling/2nd prussic. Aprox 3500' elevation gain - half on primitive trail, half off trail. Usually takes about 8-10 hours round trip from car depending on speed of slowest party member. Group trip, supportive environment. Beautiful summit with amazing views of entire south sound. Come prepared for exercise, a little exposure and wearing a smile to share :-)
