Itinerary:

This event is a moderate class 3 scramble up Mount Chester. It's supposed to snow tomorrow so bringing an ice axe and crampons wouldn't be a bad idea, if it doesn't look too bad we can leave them in the car. The scramble is 13km with 1120m elevation gain and should take us 4-7 hours at a steady, moderate pace. Participants should have some scrambling experience. We can organize a carpool if enough people are interested.
