01/26/2006 - The Struggle at Potter Heights

Not to yield says it all. The enduring, the surviving, does not stop with age. We may even grow more skillful at it as the years pass. So we do not envy youth. We ask no quarter of life. We accept no favors. We are men following virtue and knowledge. ~Dr. George Sheehan

Rob DeVelice will lead "The Struggle at Potter Heights" with an estimated duration of 3 hours.

The 6:30 p.m. start will be in the parking area by the mail boxes at the South end of Potter Marsh (New Seward Highway).

The plan is to follow the Turnagain Arm Trail to the Rabbit Lake Trail. We will then take the Rabbit Lake Trail a short ways and bushwhack to the ridge top between Potter Creek and Turnagain Arm. We will then follow this ridge over a summit (steep and potentially treacherous snow) and through alder before descending back to Potter Marsh.
Since big snows are expected prior to this Epic, be prepared for post holing. Devices to help you adhere to steep snow slopes will also be desirable. Also, the descent route features robust rose bushes and devils club.
