This is a strenuous hike that involves 22 miles and 6,400' of elevation gain. Oh yes, and reportedly good views. Class 2+ climbing to the summit, which is over 12,000 feet.
Please do not sign up for this hike unless you have successfully completed a dayhike of over 17 miles in the past 6 months, and been over 10,000 feet elevation in the past year.
We will leave from the TH, Sage Flat (just south of the town of Olancha) at 5am. Because of the early start, some of us may wish to spend the night at the TH on Friday while others will prefer to drive up that morning. So, we'll discuss carpooling arrangements after we see who signs up.
You will need to carry 5 liters of water per person. You can bring a filter, but there is no guarentee ww will find water along the way.
Because of the challenging nature of this hike, I will add people to the "going" list based on my knowledge of your abilities. If we do not know each other, please answer the two questions that apear when you RSVP or send me a message listing comprable hikes you've done recently. Thank you.
