Read this page in its entirety before your RSVP


To reach the summit we will go through the crux...a small section where you have to walk on a narrow ledge (roughly 50 feet or so). But there is a cable to guide you along the section which proves especially useful for those who have a bit of a fear of heights!  This will not be a point of decision...your decision is made when you RSVP. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nT2Bv4fu0H0

    Clear skies in the forecast, but this will go rain or shine, electrical storms will obviously mean a cancellation.

    Let's try to meet at petro canada right at 4:30. I want to hit the trail by 5:15, 5:30 at the latest.

    If you want to meet right at the trailhead, let me know. I assume we will meet Alex there.

    As always, let me know if you are running late or need to cancel. [masked]
