Mailbox Peak (winter)

Required Equipment

Required Equipment

10 essentials are required. If you have micro-spikes or crampons, bring them ( I didn't need them on 2/23). Don't bother with snowshoes. I would recommend Trekking poles. An ice axe is not needed on this route.  We will be ascending the old route which is steeper than the new route.
