You must answer the questions when you RSVP in order to join this hike. You may not see the questions if you RSVP from a cell phone, in which case, you will have to update your RSVP from a computer. Everyone will start on the Waiting List.

I have classified this as an ADVANCED hike due to winter conditions and the possibility of severe weather.

This is one of the easier 4000-foot peaks, but it will be much more difficult in winter. If you are just starting to work on your winter 4000-footer list, this is a good mountain to start on. You will need microspikes for traction and may also need snowshoes either due to snow depth or to keep the trail in good condition so other hikers don’t end up in potholes we potentially could create. The pace will be steady but on the slower side. There will be lots of brief wait ups to help prevent people from both overheating and chilling. After the hike, those who wish can stop at a local restaurant for food and drink.
