We'll meet at the Blue Lake Trailhead at 7:00 a.m. It's a long drive so I recommend driving up Saturday. The parking lot will be snowed in so we'll need to park on the side of the road. There may not be much room so carpooling is encouraged.

Climbers must be comfortable climbing and rappeling on steep snow in crampons.
