day hike - provo east peak & freedom peak

We plan to bag Provo East Peak (11,044 ft) and Freedom Peak (10, 801 ft), weather, conditions and situation permitting. Provo East Peak is the least often climbed Wasatch 11000 footers. We will take the longest but easiest (class 2 scrambles) to Provo East Peak and continue on the short class 3 ridge to Freedom Peak that offers remarkable 360 degree views of neighboring mountains and beyond. Depending on where we will start, there may be additional distance (3 miles RT) and elevation gain (1,400 ft). Please bring microspikes (if there is snow) and 10 Es. Exploratory. The location may change depending on situations. Please email before Friday, 6 pm on October 9 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. Co-organized with Barb Gardner.
