This event is not a hike. It's an off-trail scramble on steep terrain (dirt and rock) with some sections of exposure where a fall could result in serious injury or worse.
Participants must have alpine scrambling experience and frequently hike difficult trails such as Mailbox Peak, Mt Si, and Granite Mountain.
