We will add more soon.
To get on the email list, send an email to email@example.com and with the subject, “Add me to the list.” Announcements come out about once a week from that email address. Due to weather or other reasons, we make changes to the calendar last minute that sometimes aren’t reflected here but are sent out by email.
April 25 West Peak. Dani Evenson will lead a trip up West and Middle Peaks Sunday (tomorrow).
This trip is about 3800′ of elevation gain and should take 5 hours depending on conditions.
REQUIRED GEAR- snowshoes- microspikes- Ice ax
Optional gear: crampons & trekking poles
We will depart the parking lot at 8:30 a.m.
April 26. Sunshine Cliffs. Carl Reese is planning an evening trip to some mostly unexplored sea cliffs just north of Sunshine Cove so they tentatively called the Sunshine Cliffs. If there’s another name, make it known. The rock is the same as the more established Sea Cliffs. The Sunshine Cliffs are much taller than the Sea Cliffsand have more variety. Or so it seems in our trip out there last year. I hope to better flag the trail and bring loppers as well. All climbing will be top rope because there aren’t any bolts and the cracks need cleaning. There are places to set top rope. This is an after work event on a Monday. For more info, contact Carl 723-9323.
April 17. Hawthorne Peak. Theresa Soley and Carl Reese will lead a climb up Hawthorne Peak. This climb has been a Juneau Alpine Club standard for a long time. This climb requires ice axe, crampons, and snowshoes. Backcountry ski gear could also work but you will have to lug your skis a fair distance before you can skin up. Most likely some people will ski and others won’t. If you are interested contact Theresa ( firstname.lastname@example.org )before 7PM Thursday April 15.
May 8. Stroller White. Carl Reese is leading a climbing trip up Mount Stroller White that is likely going to be a backcountry ski trip. This is a difficult climb. The climb will be technical depending upon conditions. Ice axe and crampons will likely be necessary. A bicycle for the first (and last) few miles is great too. The views from Stroller White are spectacular. If you are interested contact Carl before 7 PM Friday.723-9323
June 18-19-15 or 19-20 “Solstice ridge hike.” We are doing a “solstice” hike at night on Shark Traverse (Shark =Sheep and Clark). It’s being led by Carl Reese. The sun will set and rise without getting completely dark, especially on a mountain top. The traverse should take about 8 hours. We plan to start in the evening and by done by about 4 AM. Contact Carl by Thursday at 6PM if you are interested. 723-9323.
The timing of this trip requires bluebird skies so the timing of this hike will be refined as the day approaches.
