Description:

I did the Semi Alcoholic Traverse 2 years ago, and now I want to do the full one. So basically we will start at Brandywine meadows, then go around and sleep at the bottom of Mt Fee, and reach Brew Hut for the second night. So we need to bring tent for the first night. We need at least 2 cars since it is a traverse.

This trip is beginner friendly. However, you have to be reasonably fit (fit doesn't mean fast, I am myself not particularly fast... but you have to be able to hike for 10-12 hours a day), and previous backpacking/camping experience is highly desired. I don't have a lot of experience in navigation, so the route might be a bit longer than expected.

Other than normal gear for a hiking trip, we will need to bring an ice axe and a helmet. If you never used an ice axe, it is fine, I will teach you how to use it.

For now I accept 15 people, but I can accept more if experienced people join.
