Assuming the Sandy Pt ascent on Saturday is a success, Last Chance Mtn on Sunday will be Daryn Dodge's DPS list finish. Sandy is a 2000 foot gain and 11 miles; Last Chance is 3000 feet of gain and 5 miles. Join us for one or both peaks. We will have a short celebration on the summit of Last Chance Mtn, and perhaps back at the trailhead, so climbers can drive home at a reasonable hour on Sunday. Send e-mail with conditioning and experience to Leader: Daryn Dodge. Co-leaders: John Cheslick, Kathy Rich, and Gary Schenk.

Plan to ski up the north fork of Big Pine Creek to a campsite somewhere between First Lake and Seventh Lake, depending mostly on how far the road is open. Snow camp Friday night, climb Cloudripper Saturday, ski out and return home Sunday. Leaders will be on skis.

Requires high altitude experience (camp will be 10-11,000 ft), excellent physical condition, avalanche safety training, winter snow travel and climbing skills.

This was slated to happen on the spring weekend in March but
the weather did not cooperate. I am hoping for a better weather window
this time around.

Day trip on snow, ice-axe, crampons, skis or snowshoes. Skis with
skins or snowshoes needed for the approach then ice-axe and
crampons for the summit area.

Meet at 8.30am at Carson Pass Sno-Park on Highway-88, ready to go.
To park there you will need a sno-park permit. They are strict about this
and you will be cited (heavy fine) in case you do not have a sno-park permit.
