Overnight Camp @ Organ Needle Summit.
Round Trip 8 Mi. Very Strenuous. 10 hr hiking time.
Starts at Dripping Springs Rec Area. Hike up Organ Needle Trail to Juniper Saddle. Stop for a quick rest and evaluate weather. Hike up thru Dark Canyon to the crux, pull up the packs, then continue up to the Needle summit. We leave Sunday at dawn.
This is an exploratory bivouac, the site of camp may change at any given time.
If anyone needs a shelter, I have a small backpacker tent and pack to use.
It will be very cold @ night and perhaps windy, so proper clothing and gear is essential.
