"April is the cruellest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain." T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land

Jesse Gobeli will lead "Path of Destruction" with an estimated duration of 3 hours.

Meet at 6:30 p.m. at the Telephone Pole Rock parking area across from Beluga Point.   Our plan is to directly ascend the path of destruction, battling thorns and loose boulders along the way.  We will work our way through the cliffs until we reach the base of Black Mesa.  From there, we will attempt to ascend the southeast couloir, depending on snow conditions.  Ice axe and microspikes will likely be needed.   We will descend the west ramp of the mesa back to the start.
