The trip will start at 7am on Saturday February 19; attendees can either stay at a local establishment or sleep at the trailhead (Barnum Rd, Jewett, NY, 42.264017, -74.176820) as I will do.

While all skill levels are welcome, attendees MUST:

  1. have the athletic and mental ability to travel over difficult terrain; 5,000’ elevation gain – on snow – over the entire trip
  2. have the clothing and gear (shoes shoes, micro-spikes, full body shell protection) to travel safely in extremely cold temperatures
  3. have the gear to sleep outside in extremely cold temperatures; while we will be spending each of the two nights at a lean-to, attendees must be prepared to sleep outside

Please contact Greg with questions and to sign-up.
