Review the route and self select prior to submitting requests.

Please no requests prior to June 20th. For all inquires seeking leader permission, please contact me via the Mountaineers site (not direct e-mail) as this helps me search, sort, review, all requests in order received. Any and all communication outside these parameters will be ignored. 

As with all trips scheduled in advance, go/no go is subject to suitable conditions. An alternate objective  is a possibility but not guaranteed. I'll be submitting for advanced NCNP backcountry permits for this itinerary and will likely change these plans if not received.
