Priority sign up for Angulo/Metz SIG members.  Others are welcome to join after February 1st.

This  is  one of several conditioning hikes that will be scheduled for the Angulo/Metz SIG.  If, by this time, you feel you are conditioned and ready to take on the bigger alpine adventures that will be a part of the Basic Alpine Course, feel free to bring a fully weighted pack (25 pounds or  20% of your body weight).  Participants will have the opportunity  to use this hike  to determine if they meet the conditioning  requirements necessary for  many  of the climbs  that will be listed throughout the climbing season.   

If you feel you still need  some extra time to meet the conditioning requirements, please come anyway. I assure you the sunset is no less enjoyable for those carrying a light pack.
