To the best of my knowledge we will repeat Jack’s first Epic, Tire Iron.  The first mile or so will be a walking mile.  We will head up Nintendo Hill to Little O’Malley where in 2012 high winds forced us to escape (nearly blew Jack away) down the north west ridge to the Middle Fork Trail.  We will follow hard packed (hopefully) trails and spectacular weather toward Prospect and return via a combination of South Rim Trail and Powerline Trail.

Please spread the word to those who may want to join.
