The plan is to attempt Mount Massive from Mount Massive trailhead and possibly return via North Halfmoon Creek trailhead.  Coming down the south side would cut down on distance and if running into the night, it may easier to walk out on the road.  The hiking will be generally class 2, but there will be lots of easy scrambling on rocks possibly covered with snow.  We may have to posthole some.

There is a trail most of the way up, however snow conditions can affect the speed of the group significantly.  We may not reach the top of Massive, but will try to make the trip enough for a difficult C, so it would be accepted for prospective BMS students.  No tigers, please.  The pace will be moderate and the group will not be split up unless in an emergency situation.

Consider this trip as a full day trip (not an overnighter).  Bring sturdy boots, warm clothing, hat and gloves or mittens, strong wind gear, headlamp and extra drinks.  Hiking pole and microspikes are recommended.  Don't plan to take snowshoes, I will let everyone know if that would be required.

Backpacking school students have priority registration until November 3, after that the trip will be open for every CMC member.  The trip is now open for all CMC members.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
