READ THE ENTIRE WRITE-UP BEFORE SIGNING UP FOR THIS TRIP!!!


This is rated as a very difficult trail, but the views from the top are overwhelming and possibly the best in Yellowstone! The trail is situated in the northern end of the park, south of Mammoth, just past Golden Gate. This trip will involve hiking and scrambling.

It is your responsibility to make sure you have acquired all necessary equipment, clothing, and food for this trip. All outdoor activities involve a certain degree of risk, so it is up to you to be prepared, self-reliant, responsible, cautious, and aware of surrounding hazards. As well, mountain weather can be unpredictable, so be prepared for unforeseen changes. For safety reasons, if you show up for this event unprepared or with inappropriate clothing and or gear you will not be permitted to continue on the trip.

It is my intent to empower members to take responsibility and gain backcountry experience and knowledge. This event should be viewed as a learning experience as well as a fun filled trip.

MANDATORY PRE-TRIP MEETING: June XX, 2013

At the meeting all required permits and or reservations need to be presented to the trip organizer, or you risk being removed from the trip. Any fees incurred by the group leader for your participation in the trip must be paid in full by this date. Fees paid by the group leader will be non- refundable and non-transferable (this trip involves commitment).

If you have any questions I can be contacted at [masked]

    Canyon campground appears to be fully booked. Perhaps they have some non-reservable. Still space at other campgrounds though. Assuming the group will be meeting at the trail heads?
