    A quick pointer : Anyone who starts before 7 :30 without registering (checking in for the event) will not be considered a participant for this event. Everyone must check in. Im assuming parking will be a cluster ****. I am arriving at 4 to help out w trail marking. We can meet at my truck . Its a Dark Grey Nissan Frontier (It says NISMO on both sides of the bed) w a yellow Northface sticker on the back window. There's another sticker on top of it that says "Got Altitude?" There will be two people to gather the group if I am not back by 7:30 (Justin and Gahda who will have a San Gabriels Mountains Hike Group print out). Please check in and proceed up the mountain! I will see everyone on my way down and head back up with you!
