GOALS AND Expectations

  • Our main goals are to have fun, be safe, and safely travel/navigate to the summit of Sloan Peak.
  • Please make sure you're ready for the distance and elevation gain so that everyone has a great time together.
  • Expedition behavior expected.
  • All participants should be familiar with the route and weather.
  • After the recent heat waves, it will likely be "late" season for the already receding Lynch Glacier, so navigation may be interesting.
