The climb is really straight forward, however getting there can be challenging.   It is really a beautiful area and a wonderful climb, but please do not take the approach lightly.  Everyone participating should be in good condition to carry their packs (snow shoes, crampons, ropes, climbing gear) over snow and possibly boulders, then be able to successfully participate in the rock climb portion of this trip.
