Weather permitting this weekend, my goals are to enter via 4th of July and exit Icicle Ridge. Anyone up for a small snowshoe?

The goal would be to park two cars, one at either end. Any takers for this Saturday 4/10?

Might be interested, but just as others said, I'll keep a sharp eye on the forcast.

Forecast doesn't seem to be in our favor for a trek up icicle this weekend. Great weekend for any who do skiing or snowboarding I assume though.

I'd be interested if I can get EK to change his mind on Goblin.

Tell EK to come over.  We'll make sure he gets back to work on time. smile.gif

As of right now, my plans are solid to go for it.

Dave, you still up for ascending 4th, descending Icicle? Park two cars?


My idea, early in, early out. Alpine start, 4-4:30am?

EDIT:::::

Okay...canceled again due to no partner/questionable avy conditions. oh well, best to err on the side of caution.
