Backcountry Skis/Splitboards required. Priority (for participants and leaders) goes to students of the Foothills Climbing Courses, Foothills SIGS, or Everett Climbing Courses. 

This trip will depend on snowpack and weather. Ideally we will approach on flotation. This should not be your first time on skis/splitboards and you need to know how to use your gear up and downhill.

We will stash our gear at the base of the climb, climb the route, rappel down, and then ski out. Be prepared for snow on the route - mountaineering boots recommended, approach or climbing shoes accepted.
