Details

We will backpack from the TH to the base of the mountain and camp there.  We will get an early start the next morning to take advantage of the best snow conditions.   The couloir is a moderate snow climb, averaging 40 degrees occasionally steeping to 50 degrees.  After climbing we will pack up our camp and return to Denver, stopping along the way for an after climb meal.

Notes

This trip is for Denver HAMS students who are training for grad climbs (Gannett Peak or various volcanoes in the Cascades)
