This will be a long day so all participants must bring 3L - 4L of water, and don't forget to bring more snacks/food then usual. Please note that since this is a difficult hike I'll check hiking history and might be touching base with you.


Note you will need to be in good shape to complete this event as the elevation gain is just under ... well, a lot! It will be my first time up there, I don't think there are difficulties but it will be a long day:

So, we'll walk at a steady pace with limited breaks!


ONLY THOSE WHO ANSWER THE RSVP QUESTIONS WILL BE PERMITTED ON THE HIKE.  Organizers have the authority to decide who is allowed on their trip based on your profile and hiking history.  Please ensure your profile is up to date.


For safety reason (mainly wildlife), we'll keep the group together. Not willing to separate the group so everybody need to make sure they can handle 1500M ELEVATION!
