hike the beat out

This will be a somewhat slower pace offering of a WMC classic. It's a little early in the session for the Beat Out, so conditions will dictate the day. Starting at the White Pine trailhead, this hike catches the ridge at Pfiefferhorn and crosses to Chipman and South Thunder, then drops down Bell Canyon to Wasatch Boulevard. This hike may require any combination of snowshoes, micro-spikes, and crampons. Ice axe and avie gear required. Expect a 12-hour day (6 to 6) full of snow, rock, distance, elevation, exposure, etc. Participation will be limited to the Wilderness maximum of 10.
