This trip is a 3rd class scramble for Bobcat Section members only. Bobcat members register with leader.

This trip has moderate exposure while scrambling up the Father Dyer ridge. Depending on your experience, the exposure can be fun and entertaining, or quite challenging. The approach hike is up a steep jeep road with a, sometimes, difficult stream crossing.

Helmets are required.

Weather permitting, we may have a short celebratory picnic back at the trailhead. With this in mind consider bringing a snack, beverage, and folding chair.

There are no restroom facilities at TH. Should the group want, a short restroom stop near Breckinridge can be accommodated on the drive out.

Leader will send out a detailed trip write-up, including GPX file, prior to departure day.

Finally, please monitor your email and text messages that morning in case the trip needs to be rescheduled due to weather.
