Meet at the Hoodsport Information by 08:00 and be ready to caravan up towards the lower trailhead as soon as possible.   Hopefully we will be able to park at the lower trailhead, but be prepared to safely park on the road and hike about 1/2 mile.

Kitsap scramble students will have registration priority until 17:00 on 4 May.

Bring Ice axe and crampons and helmet as well as 10 essentials.  Participants must be able to properly use an ice axe to belay and self arrest and to glissade.  Dress for the weather.  

Weather looks to be not too bad, but deteriorating conditions will cause us to either cancel or turn back early.  Achievement of the bowl above the winter chute will constitute a successful mission if weather becomes an issue.
