  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 12.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,600 ft

Leader will send out email with details to the roster once the activity closes Nov 20 in the evening. Meeting will be at ~8:00 on the eastside, where we'll stage cars.

I listed Challenging because the route will probably have snow/ice, depending on the weather. Please bring hiker's traction (e.g. yaktraks, stabilicers, or similar) - crampons would be overkill.
