We will meet at the road cut off National Forest Development Road 6095 at 8.30AM ready to go

Expect a long day in the mountains. The goal is to do K9 and Sopwith Camel. There should be water sources along the way. 

The two peaks are not on the same ridge. So we will need to move quick to make summit on both of them. 

Like in every early winter, the conditions are known to change depending on weather and the risks are high. 

Please come prepared to help navigate and also to keep a brisk pace and expect to break trail as needed 

To help self assess - if you can hike up to the base of Mount si in under 2 hours.
