**DATE CHANGED** Extreme day hike Ashby Gap to Compton Gap

This is a repeat of this hike: http://www.meetup.com/adventurer/events/115434212/

*** EXTREME HARDCORE OVER 26 miles AND lots of ELEVATION GAIN***

 

This event is not full but I need to qualify each individual as it is an EXTREME hike.

We will need to cover 26 miles with close to 6000 ft of elevation gain.

If you haven't hiked with me previously you will have to answer the question before I move you from waitlisted to confirmed.

 

If you have more than a 20% no-show rate, you will need to contact me before I can approve you.  If you change your RSVP to NO after Thursday night you will not be allowed on a future hike.

 

There is very little support on this hike.  You will need to carry all your supplies with you.

It is a point to point hike so we will need a shuttle.  There will be long waits at the end due to the shuttle.  If we cannot secure a shuttle this hike will be cancelled or modified to be a loop.

 

Here is an image of the hike in the reverse direction.

thanks,

Swam

    Just one final confirmation, to make sure I got everything right:

    I'm picking up Swamy 6am Centreville P&R, then driving to Compton Gap SNP where we'll pick up Alex & Vince, finish drive/begin hike at Ashby Gap.

    Sound like a plan?

    Would anybody be passing by Rockville on their way to the meetup that would be able to help me out with a ride

      I know metro doesn't run that early, I was thinking you could find transportation to the metro. Sorry to hear that's not an option.

      1 · July 3, 2013

  • Alex L.

    So we would be going right to left?

    July 1, 2013

    • Tom

      No, after arriving at the gap you must climb Carson Mountain (Fort Windham Rocks) and then Compton Peak.

      Tom, haha. That's what I meant.

    Looks like an awesome hike, wish I could join you, but already committed to lead a hike before this one was announced. Hope I can make it to the next one!

      Yep! Count me in!

      Sorry - the 6th won't work for me, either. It's going to be a busy summer.

  • Tom

    Sorry - I have an early evening engagement.

      No thanks. A little too challenging for my fitness level right now.

      Maybe some day?
