Class 2 scrambles. Please bring 10 Es. I have hiked to a neighboring peak, Murdock Mt, before but not to Mt Cardwell and Murdock West Slope. The location may change depending on situations. Please email before Friday, 6 pm, Aug 7, 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. COVID-19 protocols will apply. Update (Aug 3): Mt Cardwell and Murdock Mt are currently on the border of the closed area due to wildfire. If the situation does not improve by Sat, we will hike to East Lofty Peak or somewhere in the Uintas.
