  • High Point Elevation: 13,281 ft

We will meet at the Wilderness Office near the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center in RMNP at 2 pm on Sunday.

Plan will be to pick up a wilderness camping permit on Sunday afternoon, then hike in to camp somewhere along the route, maybe at the Battle Mountain camp site.  You will need winter camping gear for this.  The climb is rated steep snow/AI2/M3 and will require belayed climbing on steep snow with multiple rock/ice technical sections.  Participants should have technical multipitch ice and mixed climbing experience, but won't need to lead climb.
