Priority given to JHPearce 2018 Basic Climbing SIG students and supporting leaders. Leader permission required. Do NOT send direct e-mail. Instead, use the Mountaineers website for all inquiries. Thanks.

Ideally, we'll make our high camp at the Colonial/ Neve Col at 6800 ft. Note: this is much further than listed in the standard route description. This is of course contingent upon both weather and the abilities of the party. The alternative 5900 ft camp will be back up. 

Come summit day Snowfield will be the primary objective. Additionally, we'll tag Horseman's Pack on our return/exit.
