Meet at the Monroe Park and Ride on Highway 2 west of the fairgrounds at 6:30 AM. 

This is not a technically demanding scramble but given elevation gain, requires good fitness. As of Monday the Beckler River road has snow  on it and has not been plowed. High Clearance AWD or 4X4  transportation will help our ability to get to start point. Otherwise we may be faced with extra miles of road walking.
