"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything." Mark Twain

Lee Helzer will lead "Rays on Rainbow" with an estimated duration of 3.5 hours.

Meet at 6:30 in the Telephone Pole Rock parking area (on the left after Beluga Point) on the Seward Highway. We will head up to the Turnagain Arm Trail and then diverge onto a ridge heading towards the Black Mesa. From there we will asses snow conditions and either continue up the North Face or the south west ridge of Rainbow Peak (hopefully) enjoying a beautiful sunset along the way.  Ice axe and micro spikes recommended.

From the summit we will take the standard route back to the Turnagain Arm Trail and return to the cars. There are out and back opportunities for those not desiring partaking in the full enchilada.

Post Report

No rays on Rainbow, but plenty of flakes on Rainbow.  Recent and active snow slowed us down considerably.
