  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 12.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,200 ft

TBD but expect to start no later than 5am.

All winter scrambling gear is required. Snowshoes with crampons (not Tubbs or something you got at Costco) are also required. This will be a slow-and-steady pace but expect to plunge step. We will evaluate conditions as we head up and have a group meeting at the base of the chute to deliberate whether to go or not.
