The goal of this hike is to build fitness for the summer climbing season. Plan to carry a pack weight that will challenge you, but allow you to maintain about a 2 mph pace. We will go up the Cable Line Trail, take a short break at the West Tiger 3 summit, and descend on the West Tiger 3 Trail. View the route here

If you're a climbing student from any branch, we've climbed together before, or you've been on my conditioners before, you have permission to sign up. Everyone else, please use the Request Leader Permission button and tell me about recent hikes or other conditioning you've done.
