***As with all GWH events, you must sign the GWH waiver before attending – it takes less than a minute to sign, and once you’ve signed it once you’re good to go for all future meetups***

To complete this hike, I highly recommend bringing electrolytes, snacks, at least 2L of water, and your 10 essentials. Please bring layers as weather at the summit may be much colder. I recommend micro spikes as they may be valuable to have on hand to provide traction on snow fields. 

Link to the 10 essentials list:

Since we’ll be at a high altitude, please make sure you bring aspirin or another headache soother, electrolytes, extra water, and I recommend bringing something to help you with nausea – you never know!

This hike is open to hikers of all skill levels. We’ll be hiking as a group, and nobody will be left behind or forgotten.

Any updates will be posted on the event thread via the pinned post, and I'll update the event description if anything changes!
