Priority for this climb is given to students and rope leads associated with Juliet and Constanza's SIG.

Other climbers can contact me after May 1st and request permission to join.  I will know by then who can make it from our SIG and what slots are available.

Intermediate rope leads are encouraged to apply!  :D

Also, i'm listing this as a 2-day climb, but am open to doing it in a day with a fit party.
