day hike - kelsey peak & beyond via butterfield

We plan to bag Kelsey Peak (10,373 ft) and hopefully Rocky Peak (10,273 ft) via Butterfield, weather, conditions and situation permitting. I have hiked to Kelsey Peak (distance 8.8 miles RT and 4,000 ft elevation gain) - the route is entirely on the trail. From Kelsey Peak, we plan to continue on the ridgeline (approximately 460 ft drop and 360 ft up plus 3 bumps) to Rocky Peak (additional RT distance - 4 miles). Class 2 scrambles. Please bring microspikes (if there is snow) and 10 Es. The location may change depending on situations. Please email before Friday, 6 pm, October 2, 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.
