Esmeralda Basin Trailhead 6:15 a.m.  Feet on the trail at 6:23 a.m. sharp.  Recommend car camp or nearby campgrounds given a 2.5-ish hour driving distance from the metro area.

We will do the scramble variation, so you need to be comfortable with some unroped scrambling exposure.


So that we’re all on the same page, your participation on this trip implies acceptance of the following – That you will be an engaged and contributing teammate to the discussion, decisions, and actions going forward. 

Please request leader permission via the Mountaineers site. Direct e-mails will be ignored. 
List what volunteering you have done for the club, your conditioning,  and any other pertinent information.

When asking for permission put the "Max. currents" listed in the information above in the email - or request will be ignored

Please only register for this climb if you are serious about either getting up early to make it to the trailhead on time, or plan on staying overnight.  I expect there will be a waitlist for this climb, and it is always disappointing when folks cancel a couple of days out and those on the waitlist are no longer able to go due to short notice. 

Leader reserves the right to cancel registrants off the roster for any reason, particularly non-responsiveness to e-mail communication.
