Description:

Beginner friendly workhike to Phelix Hut.  We'll be replacing a pair of windows and need people to haul them up.  If you're not lucky enough to score a window, there'll be plenty of tools and supplies for you to carry up.

Projects include, besides replacing two windows, washing down the interior painted walls to remove soot and mold, varnishing the wood beams, and removing a bird that has made holes in the wall of the Hut.  Not exactly glamorous work, but it needs to be done.

The Brian Waddington Hut (Phelix) is huge, so the more the merrier.  This is the largest and nicest of the VOC huts, so don't miss the opportunity to come check it out.

Some of us are planning to drive up Friday evening and camp, so we can get started up the trail to the hut before it becomes too skorching hot.
