Start: Sunday, May. 1st, 6:00 am


No pre-trip, organization using sign up tool and message board.

We'll meet at 8:15am at the bus stop at Lynn Valley Headwaters. Just to be on the safe side, bring beacon, shovel, probe, ice ax, snow shoes and crampons.

Don't forget, cotton kills! Have your rain gear, enough food, 2 liters to drink, headlamp,... if any questions about what else to bring check the Wiki or ask me. Gaiters are highly recommended, too.

We'll go up to Lynn Peak and from there on the ridge to the Needles.
Weather forecast is currently not that great but if we're lucky it'll be sunny!

Cars are not needed as you can take the bus 210 from downtown. However, if someone has a car, use the signup tool for it and people can put themselves into the car. Organize with the driver the pickup. Also choose the driver you live closest to.

Any questions, comments, suggestions,... post it! Hopefully see some people Sunday!
