Edit - This is no longer a conditioning test, we will aim to do Tiger Mountain 3-2-1 in that order. We will evaluate weather and group decisions at West Tiger #3 and innovate the route as we go. 

This trip is meant for a conditioning test for Basic Alpine Climbing students and Alpine scrambling students. Aim to make to the base of the haystack in less than 2 hrs with 15-20% of your body weight equivalent in your backpack.
