The 5-person team (a great mix of male and female Airmen, including both enlisted and officers) will meet at the trailhead tonight. A heavier than expected snowfall left them 1" of snow at the trailhead, 1ft of snow at their 12,000ft camp and over 1.5' higher up. Our team expects some packed snow slopes and deeper drifts, but are prepared with micro-spikes, crampons for any steep/hard snow, and a range of other climbing gear. Temps look comfortable at the trailhead but will drop to the 20s near the summit.
Follow along for more CA updates, as well as a BIG trip to MD's high-point this weekend.
