This is a conditioner hike to build fitness and get a baseline for conditioning. It is recommended to carry some weight in your pack to get used to carrying a load. I will bring a pack scale if you want to weigh your pack. We will try to stay in the aerobic zone rather than pushing for a specific time or pace. It might get snowy/icy at the top so plan on bringing micro spikes and poles

Josh and Erika SIG have priority. Others please request permission and you will be added if there is room.
