This is going to be a tentative winter overnight that will start with an ascent of Lincolns Throat (Ice Climbing) then commence with a hike to Mt Lafayette, then on to Mt Garfield with full condition winter overnight in between.
I need to look into the details of this. I have one 3 person 4 season tent. I want as many who want to go, to go (up to 10 anyway) but am opening this up to 3 total at first. If you are one of the first 2 who respond AND you have a 4 season tent to bring, I will add people from the waitlist. If you are not one of the first 2 but you do have a tent, jump on the waitlist and I will bump you and as many more as your tent can handle. If you want to go but dont want to share your tent, thats fine too. Some people like privacy and thats perfectly acceptable.
Personal Alpine bivy sacks are fine too if that's what you want to use.
Ice climbing gear and knowledge of its use required.
Check back for updates!
Disclaimer: Participation in ice climbing involves significant risk of personal injury and death. No amount of skill, equipment and experience can make ice climbing safe.
Waiver: Your participation in this event is completely voluntary and you waive all claims against the meetup, it's organizers or the members of this event should you become injured, disabled or deceased. You agree to climb within your level of skill, understanding and comfort and not knowingly jeopardize the safety of a fellow climber by attempting anything that is beyond your level of skill, understanding or comfort.
NB: Lincolns Throat is subject to avalanche conditions if the snow accumulation is high enough. We will be roping up for all sections of the climb that call for it.
NB: This is planned to be an Alpine Minimalist adventure. I want to keep it light and streamlined. This is not about slogging through the forests burdened with oversized, overpacked rucksacks. This is about Alpine Style!!!
NB: We will likely need to car spot. You must be willing to be a car spotter if need be.
NB: There is a 0 guest policy on this trip for a logistical reason; an ice climb is involved and gear and sufficient lead climbers are needed to accommodate. This means unexpected guests can, and most likely will, be turned away.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
