This is a physically strenuous trip with exposed scrambling. Therefore, you'll need to be in good hiking shape and have scrambling experience. Sign-up for the waitlist and I'll add people depending on their experience, not necessarily in the order in which they sign up. We move at a moderate to fast pace, with only a few small hydration breaks, plus a break at the summit. Above average fitness required. This trip is not for you if you're slow and/or like taking a lot of breaks, or require a return to the city by a set time.

Elevation gain - 1040 m
Distance - 11 km
Car to car time - estimated 4 to 7 hrs
Technicality: Difficult via Bear's Hump
Fitness Level: Advanced
