Goal: 
Mt. Harrington (11,009')

This is a restricted mountaineering trip requiring Sierra Club membership.

Wednesday we will backpack to Frypan Meadows via Deer Cove trail 7.6 miles and ~3000 ft. Thursday we will climb Harrington (11,009), class 3, about 10 miles round trip with about 3000 feet elevation gain and hike out.

This is a moderately difficult trip. We may have to carry skis or snowshoes to use on snow accessing Harrington. Early morning snow will likely be firm enough to use crampons. The peak is class 3.

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 possibly snowshoes or skis, skins, poles, and ski crampons. Recent snowshoe or backcountry skiing experience are required for those taking that gear.
