Goal: 
Mt. Julius Caesar (13,200'+)

This is a restricted trip requiring Sierra Club membership. Saturday we will backpack to Honeymoon Lake (10,400') for our camp, 6.4 miles, 3000 ft gain. Sunday will be a long day with a very early start. We will climb Julius Caesar (13,200'+), 10 miles round trip with about 3000' of elevation gain. Monday hike out.
This is a moderately difficult trip. We plan to use skis or snowshoes in Granite Basin (expect good corn snow for skiing). Early morning snow will be firm for travel with crampons and ice axes. The peak is class 2. One leader will be on skis and the other on snowshoes. Mountaineering experience with ice axe and crampons, recent travel at altitude, excellent physical condition, and snow camping experience are all required. Equipment required: boot crampons, ice axe, helmet, snow camping gear, and snowshoes or skis, skins, poles, and ski crampons. Recent snowshoe or backcountry skiing experience are required.
