To be coordinated among the climbing team

Leader's permission to touch-base on previous climbing experience.  The trip will proceed primarily with a group of 4, with a team of three dependant upon climbing experience of the overall group and leader's judgement.   An alternate destination would be explored if a team of 4 cannot be secured.

Given the timing of this trip posting, trip inquires where a team of two is already assembled will be given priority.

Note this is a Thursday-Saturday trip in order to secure one of the very limited permits for this zone.
