Climb East Babcock

Sunday, September 1, 8:00 am Register by Email

Climb East Babcock (13,149 ft.) We will walk up the Tomahawk Basin jeep trail for about 2 miles, then hike off trail into the beautiful upper basin, eventually leave the basin and hike through a mix of tundra, talus and somewhat scrabbly scree to the saddle below E. Babcock. From there, it is a class 3 ridge scramble to the summit. The exposure is considerable, but the rock is generally good; you will definitely feel you earned the summit by the time you get there!
Limit 12, no dogs. 4 WD. Carpool $6.
