Meet at Mt. Teneriffe trailhead 7 am, heading up trail by 7:15.  We want to get going early because the unmasked masses start crowding the lower slopes by mid-day.

Observing Mountaineers COVID-19 guidelines.  Bring mask and hand sanitizer.  We will maintain spacing on the trail.

Bring some weight if you are getting in shape for some objective down the road, or don't.  We'll proceed at a consistent pace that keeps the group together.

We'll take the direct route that goes up past the falls, and then the steep ridge beyond.   This route is as hard or harder than Mailbox old trail, so this should not be your first hike of the season.
