Kelly Ryan will be in charge as the Mentored Leader, with Rob Busack along to co-lead.

This climb is primarily for students of the Seattle 2024 "Following to Alpine Rock" course.  The first-dibs has already been given, and others are now welcome too.

  • If you're a student in our course, you've already got permission to sign up here.
  • If you're a student or grad from some other Basic course, you're welcome to email me for leader-permission.  When you do, please give me a sense of your fitness by mentioning 2 or 3 specific trips you've done in the past year (for example, "Recently did X hiking trail, which has Y amount of elevation gain, in Z amount of hours & minutes up.") And tell me about at least one time you've carried an ice axe & crampons for snow travel.  On this climb, the approach will be on snow, pack-weight will be in the ballpark of 35lbs, and we'll move at a brisk pace gaining 1000' per hour.
  • If you have some experience leading easy trad and you'd like to be a rope lead, by all means send me a leader-permission request too.  In addition to the fitness note above, please also add a brief note that gives me a sense of what your trad-leading experience is so far.  (New-ish trad leaders are definitely welcome, this route is pretty easy, I just like to know.)
