This is a conditioning hike for folks in pretty decent condition.  2 miles up; 2000 foot elevation gain.  average 1000 foot elevation gain per mile; this is a significant elevation gain rate. not crazy, but significant.

Goal pace is 1 hour up and 1 hour down.  But, in the end, we will hike together and slowest hiker will set the pace.
