hike to the top of houndstooth - November 23, 2019

The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
It's not really an MSD-, more like a MOD+, but this is a short but VERY STEEP hike. The hike will somewhat follow the ridge to the "gum" of the Houndstooth, with a short scramble through the secret sweet spot that leads to the top. Expect approximately 6 hours. Parking is extremely limited, so meet and carpool. The weather will be the determining factor if we make it to the peak or not.
