Meet on the trailhead  on SE 79th (road next to I-90 ),  don't go up to the paved parking lot.  Muster at 5:30 pm, boots on the trail no later than 5:45 pm.

No Discover Pass is needed to park on the road.

Open to all Basic Climbing students, but if it gets full then the pecking order goes like this: McCarthy SIG, Foothills students, Seattle Basic students, other branches.

It will be dark - so a headlamp is a must.  Probably will be wet and muddy in spots, so have appropriate clothing and footwear.   If it's raining hard, consider bringing an umbrella.

Please bring traction in the form of microspikes or crampons.

Goal is to be up and down in about 2 hours or less.
