We will be finalizing trip logistics Thursday 7-19-2018.  Watch your email for instructions.

We will be taking an alternate approach to this climb that includes off trail travel, route finding and extensive scrambling.  The climb will be a "carry over" so we will not be returning to a base camp.  This will be a very strenuous outing, but if we are successful handling the route finding challenges, it will be very rewarding.
