Bedal Creek Trail Head 5am

This is a beautiful alpine climb with some glacier (not enough for a glacier credit) and a fun scramble on the corkscrew. I'm hoping the forecast clears a bit but we'll go as long as its not going to rain. Priority will be given to Everett basic climbing students. Please let me know what you do for conditioning as this is a long day, and what other climbs you are signed up on or have completed.
