It's late notice, but weather and avalanche conditions are looking good, so join me on a conditioner at a classic late winter / early spring location.

This hike is  primarily a conditioner for Tacoma Basic Climbing Students , but all are welcome to sign up.  

For Tacoma Basic Climbing Students - please make sure you have your mountaineering boots and a pack with 35 lbs of weight.  I recommend using water for weight so you can dump it at the top.
