Participants must be comfortable on class 3 terrain and must contact the leaders to be signed up and tell them about their recent class-3 and mountain climbing experience. Permit is for 6 participants including the leaders.

We will have a beautiful camping site by a lake. The next morning we get a moderately early start and climb the mountain by way of New Army Pass. We will have about 5 miles and 3000 vertical feet to the summit. We should get back to our camp by mid-afternoon. After a short break we will break camp and return to our cars.
