Difficult Scramble - Underneath the "Super" Supermoon and Meteor Shower

There is a full moon referred to as the "super" supermoon Sunday night and a meteor shower, never been a better time for a night scramble then that!

This will be a difficult scramble including 5.7 free solo sections, a ridge walk and everything else you would expect from a difficult scramble!

The location will remain a secret until we are there:P  people will meet at 7 pm in Calgary and plan to start scrambling by 8:30 pm.  Most of the people attending will not be coming back to Calgary due to a prior event.
