We'll only be doing this weekend if the weather is stellar and avi conditions look good.  Must have finished LOR and either Winter/Mixed or Alpine Ice courses and field trips.

Given unpredictable winter conditions we'll be open to changing the date and possibly looking at the Intermediate ice route depending on how people feel.

This will be a good one to get your winter overnight climb done on.
