Alright, I've been doing some thinking. I am going to restrict YES rsvp's. Here are the guidelines for being a YES on 9/10 and 10/10 hikes:
1. You have hiked with me before on a 9/10 and 10/10 rating hike. Be it my hike or Ze's.
2. You are able to keep pace or stay within 5 minutes of the main group.
3. You are a part of a preorganized Second Unit.
4. Are able to show that you have previous mountain-hiking experience.
I'm sure more are to follow.

For those on that I placed on the Waitlist, it means that you have not hiked with me and I do not know your fitness level. Please send me an email stating your training/fitness level and hiking experience. If you do not email me, I will change your RSVP to NO.

This hike is for MODERATE to ADVANCED levels ONLY unless a second unit is established the THURSDAY BEFORE (12/4) the hike.

Lower than moderate level hikers are welcome so long as there is an experienced leader with you. I will not allow 'yes' rsvp's to those who don't do cardio regularly for any unit. This hike will destroy you.

If you would like to lead this Second Unit, please email me.

Rattlesnake Peak it is. We'll meet at the end of Shoemaker Canyon Rd. I'm thinking about changing the time for perhaps 730 or 8. Although we may head a little past Rattlesnake to add some more elevation. That information is still being researched.

Email me if you have questions.

For all trips, wear boots or sturdy shoes, and bring lunch, lots of drinks, warm clothing (depending on altitude)

Trips are canceled in the event of rain (unless trip leader states differently). So assume it is canceled if it's raining the morning of.

The trip "leader" is a volunteer and not a real leader (i.e. not liable for the group). Think of it as hiking with a group of friends.
