day hike - shingle mill peak via provo canyon area

We plan to bag Shingle Mill Peak (10,680 ft) via Shingle Mill Canyon (near Provo Canyon), weather, conditions and situation permitting. We will be on the Great Western Trail (not steep) most of the time. But the last short part to the peak does not have a trail. It is possible that there is a very short easy class 3 scramble section around the peak. I have hiked to a neighboring peak, Lightning Peak, but not to Shingle Mill Peak. If participants are interested, we may make Lightning Peak as well. But the ridge between the two peaks may have short class 3 scramble sections. Please bring 10 Es. The location may change depending on situations. Please email before Friday, 6 pm, July 10, 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.
