This is a mentored lead for Craig Taylor.  Please contact him directly with inquiries regarding this climb.

Leader permission required.  First preference to Taylor/Eades and Nims SIGs.  After that open to anyone with sufficient conditioning.  Tell Craig your SIG, background and conditioning when you request permission.

To quote Mark Scheffer from his own posting: "This is a very fast paced one day climb of a summit often done as an overnight.  Participants MUST be in exceptionally good shape and prepared for a fast paced all day trip with few breaks."
