This trip is open to Seattle Branch Trip Leaders and Trip Leader candidates only.  Before signing up please read "About Leaders Permission" below.

For experienced leaders this is an opportunity to gain experience on one of the more spectacular routes in the Intermediate Snowshoe catalog.  For new or potential new candidates this is an opportunity to ask questions and talk with experienced Trip Leaders about topics of mutual interest.

For experienced leaders: by coming on this trip will have potentially kept you from leading a Club trip that would have been open to all.  Our intent is to create more trips not less, so there is an informal expectation that you will pay it forward by leading a trip along this route sometime within the next season or so.
