day hike - grandview peak via big mt pass

We attempted to make Grandview Peak (9,410 ft) on May 25 but turned around at the two-third of the way due to snow. Grandview Peak offers fantastic views of the surrounding areas but is seldom climbed due to its remoteness. We will take the longest but easiest route to the peak from Big Mt Pass. We will be on the Great Western Trail, except for the very last part where there is no trail. The very last part (very short) involves easy class 2 scrambles. The estimated hike time is 10-12 hours. This hike will be exploratory. Please bring micro-spikes and 10Es. Please email before Friday, 3 pm, July 12, for the meeting place and time. Registration priority will be given to WMC members.
