squaw peak hike w/ possible rock climb - May 1, 2016

"Welcome to the world of sportaineering." This will be an exploratory HIKE to the top of Squaw Struck (one of the longest sport routes in North America). Squaw Struck is a 22 pitch route up the South face of Squaw Mountain at 5.8 to 5.11 difficulty in Rock Canyon above Provo. The climb can be broken up into 6 sections and some of those sections can be walked off or hiked to. Let's hike the entire route and scout this amazing line while considering tackling a section or two or possibly repelling a section or two. Please study the beta and bring appropriate gear if you plan to try climbing or repelling any of the sections. All participants climbing or repelling need to have appropriate climbing and repelling gear and must wear a helmet (at least 12 draws, one 70 meter rope, 4 slings with extra biners, anchor gear, ...). Please RSVP if you plan to join me for this exploratory hike.
