Mount Teneriffe

I have to be back to park and ride by 5pm, and hence scheduling a trip close-by.

The meetup will appear full for manual control - add yourself to waiting list, and I'll pull you in depending on fit for mountain/team.

1. This is not a technical climb, but a physically demanding hike and scramble

Our t ypical hikes are around 8-10 miles round trip,[masked] feet elevation gain, and mixed terrain scramble to a peak.

2. What to Bring

Traction device (e.g. microspikes) - required
Snowshoes - required
Ice Axe- recommended (may be icy at spots)
Gaiters - required
Headlamps - required
Gloves (incl.spare) - required
Chest Harness - recommended - we can build it using a rope, but buy it for ease of use/safety. It is not expensive.
Winter mountaineering boots - required. This is a alpine scramble, and hence be ready for mixed terrain including snow travel.
Hydration and food - required
10 Essentials - required

It is winter time - make sure you are prepared to be outdoors for a long time, or, sometimes even overnight in an emergency.

For a full list of equipment: see

3. Time -
keep full day free

4. Slow Hiking speed - I go at a very slow pace. If u are faster, u have to slow down or carry more weight.
5. C arry cash for carpool the group charge $0.50 per mile divided to each occupant.

6. Weather Permitting Destination may change at last minute due to weather or other situations.

7. No Shows and Last minute cancellations: avoid
