I would like to head into the Ghost and set up camp on Friday night (or morning) (people coming in Saturday morning/evening welcome). That way we can get an early start on Saturday and get on some ice! My plan is to drive into the Ghost Friday, set up a camp at the bottom of the big hill and use that as base camp. I am planning on bringing my trailer and the dome tent as luxury winter camping items. Other luxury winter camping items encouraged. For this to work, we will need a few people with ghost-mobiles to sign up as well so that we can get people to their climbing destinations. This is not a guided trip and you will be required to make friends at camp if you don't have a partner and can't lead ice or solo the route you would like to climb. I am organizing the camping portion only however I will send out an email before the trip with # of vehicles that can make it to the ghost and participants looking for partners. Check the carpool question and organize yourselves if possible!
Required Items to Bring:
Tent, warm clothes, Ice gear, a ride to the climbing
