This climb is open to all branches. Please request permission to join. We need several students who need a climb to graduate basic and a couple rope leads.  The group will hike in and out and climb together.  We will adjust our pace to fit the entire team and will not spread out.  The climbing code dictates that we have at least 2 parties of 3 at all times on the glacier so if one team has to turn around 2 have to.  This is a safety measure to be sure we have help for a rescue.
