Final plans will be discussed at breakfast.

Priority of this climb goes to Tacoma Scrambles course, already camping in Bullion Basin on the 21st of May 2022. As I will be camping in the basin myself the night before, I will not be returning to the trailhead to pickup any other climbers outside Tacoma Scramble course.

Climb is subject to cancellation due to weather, terrain, avalanche condition and team selection/fitness.
