To complete this hike, I highly recommend bringing snacks, water, and your 10 essentials.

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!
