 May 23-24 Blackerby Ridge, Cairn and Vesper Peaks Owing to residual soft snow, we will not be doing the traverse from Mount Juneau.  Instead, Dani Evenson will be leading an overnight trip up Blackerby Ridge.  We will depart Saturdaymorning, hike up, and set camp around 3,750 feet midday.  We will then continue up the ridge with lighter packs and traverse Cairn Peak into Camp 17.  Depending on the energy level of the group, we may also climb Vesper Peak then return to camp. Folks wishing to continue on over Observation may do so. Planned return is Sunday midday.
 May 30 . Clark’s Traverse. Carl is leading a hike/climb up Clark’s Traverse. This is a climb going Mount Roberts to Sheep Mt to Mt Clark and returning Perseverance Trail.  It’s a fairly long day. Ice axe or trekking poles and ice grippers could help as there is still snow up high but crampons might be overkill. If you are interested call Carl by 7 PM Friday May 29th. 723-9323

June 3. Monthly meeting at the Island Pub at 6:30 PM. We will plan upcoming climbs and hikes. All are welcome. Come with ideas or to meet other mountaineering folks.
