The group will hike in to Pear Creek campground on August 26th and set up base camp. The next two days the group will evaluate conditions to determine if peaks in the area can be climbed. The climbs will not be scouted out beforehand so they will be exploratory. Possible climbs to be considered by the leaders include Mt Copland, Ogalalla Peak and Elk Tooth. NOTE - A bear container is required by National Park regulations (participants that don't own one will need to rent one)

Cancelled as an official trip due to lack of interest. The co-leader and I did the trip as an un-offical trip.
