The goal is to scramble the to the peak of Ossa Mountain in the Tantalus Range, with an overnight stop along the way. The scramble is in Matt Gunn's Guidebook, rated as having "one difficult notch", with 2200m total elevation gain. Also, we don't have to miss Thanksgiving.

  • Why is this Beginner Friendly? - I intend this trip for people who have some camping and hiking experience but are not as experienced in scrambling. It might be challenging. See the VOC definition of beginner friendly here.
