We will meet at Mount Washington trailhead  parking lot and weigh packs. Then be moving up the trail at 7am. This is a timed conditioner for  credit. Students will need to carry a weighted pack to the top in a predetermined time.

Micro spikes or crampons  might be useful. Will coordinate on that prior to hike for current trail conditions.
