Let's do all four of the major ridge traverses in one season.
1. Crestones
2. Little Bear Blanca
3. Wilson El Diente
4. Bells *

We will leave for the TH on Sat. morning. In years past, we have camped at Crater Lake. Last I heard camping is closed at Crater Lake due to Bear Activity. If that is the case, we will have to do it from the TH in a very long and committing day! I have done North to Peak two times so I might change it up and go Peak to North this time. We'll decide later.

Participants who sign up for multiple or all four trips will have priority for signing up for these trips. If you are a peak bagger and lack skills and confidence to move quickly over technical terrain, do not bother signing up for these trips. I have no intention of having 20hr epic days just because we are waiting on a slow person trying to check a box. Individuals who I don't know personally or know a common friend or have a BMS/HAMS Director vouch for ones movement on technical terrain and all day performance, we will need to assess ones training regimen and likely go on a climb together before the climbs start.
