Details

This is going to be a good training hike up Mt Parnassus. From the trailhead we will hike along Watrus Gultch then make our way up to the saddle between Woods and Parnassus, be prepared for very windy conditions at this point. This route mostly avoids avalanche terrain, and I will keep and eye on the weather and avalanche forecasts leading up to the hike. Be prepared for very diffucult, snowy, conditions, and be prepared to switch off breaking trail if needed.



Gear:



10 Essentials



Wind protection (especially for the face, buff and goggles)



Winter snowshoes (Not tiny little plastic spring shoes)



Treking Poles with snow baskets
