We should be in mid-season training form by now, so feel free to go heavier. We'll keep a moderate pace. At the top, we’ll practice tying required knots - maybe even in the dark!- so bring your short rope strands, gloves, and confidence. Please follow all Mountaineers COVID protocols. Headlamps and masks required. Email the leader with questions.
