November 4, 2012 - day hike mt olympus

We will go as far as November conditions permit up the standard route on Mt. Olympus. Bring micro-spikes in case of ice on the trail and trekking poles, as well as layered clothing, hat and gloves, plenty of water and snacks. If there is too much snow and ice, we might snowshoe up Grandeur Peak via Church Fork instead of Mt. Olympus, if avalanche conditions permit. If we climb Mt. Olympus to the summit, estimated time is about 6 hours, longer if the route is muddy or icy. If we climb Grandeur Peak, the estimated time about 5 hours, longer if the route is muddy or icy.
