hike - freedom peak & south cascade mt in provo - September 18, 2021

We plan to bag two rarely climbed Wasatch 10k peaks - Freedom Peak (10,801 ft) and South Cascade Mt (10,760 ft) in Provo, weather, conditions and situation permitting. We will take the Upper Pole Couloir route to get to South Cascade Mt. This part is short (approximately 1 mile) but very steep off-trail. Once we get to the ridge, there is a trail. But to bag South Cascade Mt, we will need to take off-trail approximately 100 ft. From South Cascade Mt, we will follow the trail for 3.5 miles. The last part to Freedom Peak (0.4 miles) involves class 3 scrambles. Then we will go down the Dry Fork Trail 4.5 miles). Exploratory. Please bring 10 Es. Please email before Friday, 6 pm, Sep 17, for the meeting place and time. Registration is required. Registration priority will be given to WMC members. Registrants will receive more detailed info. Limit 8.
