If you do not intend to come please do not RSVP "NO". It will create unnecessary emails to the organizer.
Please be respectful to your fellow hikers and register for the trip if you are 100% sure you can make it. Anyone set to going that backs out after RSVP's are closed gets marked as no-show.
DO you want….
• to take your Mountain adventures to a new level?
• to be comfortable scrambling over steep terrain?
• to get a good fitness, balance and have fun in the same time?
• to just train you already acquired skills?
