Traverse Giant 1410m - Rocky 1347m - Bald 933m, Blueberry 890m, Elevation Gain +-1600m, 18km - June 15th, 2019

PLEASE, READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE RSVP YES.

The hike/traverse is very difficult, with a great elevation gain of about 1600m (1600m up...) and great views!!! This traverse is scored by many hikers as one of the most spectacular hikes in the Adirondacks! However, it is one way ticket hike, as it starts and finishes at different placeJ. We will not go back to the departure point, so be conscious of that and ready for that challenging great journey J

WHEN YOU RSVP, YOU ARE ASKED 2 QUESTIONS. PEOPLE WHO DON'T PROVIDE CLEAR ANSWERS WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE LIST WITHOUT NOTICE. If you don't see questions when you RSVP, please message the answers for the following questions to me.

Q1: what was your last similar hiking?

I’m limiting that hike to 8 hikers / two cars at this moment.

$100 CAD per car shared by the number of passengers including the driver or 25 CAD/head is suggested as a ride cost.

The fine print: As with all SPACY events, if your plans change and you cannot attend the meetup event after having RSVP'd Yes, then out of respect to others, please change your RSVP to No at least 24 hours before the meetup event. This will give those on the wait-list an opportunity to take your place and participate.
