Meet at the Blue Lake Trail Head at 6:30am, ready to start hiking at 6:45am. This is a very popular route so I want to get an early start. More info to come.

This is an intermediate level rock climb, so participants must be able to lead 5.6 trad and swap leads. If I don't know you/haven't climbed with you before, send me an email with other routes you have climbed recently to gain permission to sign up. Ideally looking for participants who have done other rock climbs this summer. And priority will be given to intermediate students needing more rock climbs.
