Thanks for considering the subject trip, but unfortunately hiway 20 will not be plowed in time to support this climb. Sorry for the reschedule but in order to make the climb go, the couloir needs to have a certain amount of snow in it in order to place pro. In the couloir at the crux of the climb the snow melts out rapidly so we need to hit it as soon as the hiway opens. I reschedule the same climb for 04/17/10 if you are still interested.
