Meet at the trailhead at 8 am.

This is a strenuous hike.  Depending on the snow and trail conditions it can be difficult.  Please bring microspikes and trekking poles.  I am expecting we will summit around 11:00 am and have lunch near the lookout.  The summit can be windy so bring warm layers.  This is a mentored hike
