Notes

Bring a helmet.  Also bring an ice axe and crampons/spikes, just in case, since there may still be quite a bit of snow.  Important:  If I see chance of precipitation greater than 20% in the Saturday forecast, I will cancel.  Lightning is my main concern, and it is usually not worth our time to drive up if greater than 20%.  I will try to notify all, but please check in with me if there is concern and you have not heard from me.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
