If you are in Kate/Ambrose's SIG, or we've climbed/hiked together in the past, you have permission to sign up! All others, please request permission and let me know what other hikes you've done recently.

The primary goal for the hike is to get a check on fitness and set expectations for the minimum fitness requirements for successful trips with the Basic Alpine Course.

An email regarding trip logistics will be sent out a few days prior to the trip. Pack weight and mountaineering boots are optional. Dress as appropriate for the weather.

In addition to your 10 Essentials, you'll need microspikes, along with a headlamp and extra batteries.   Weighted packs and mountaineering boots are optional, but a good idea to help you gauge your fitness and break in your boots.
