This trip is listed as challenging as we will be taking the long way up Tiger 3, and we will be using the not-so-well used Seattle View Trail.  We will keep a comfortable and steady pace.  If the weather is pleasant, we will take a relaxing lunch break.  If not, we will still have a comfortable pace, but will keep our breaks a little shorter.  Participants should be prepared to bring poles and microspikes if Tiger has seen and snow and/or ice.
