We're planning on taking advantage of the predicted good weather on the coming weekend to try to knock off the Spearhead. We are planning a fairly rapid pace, with an exit on Sunday evening. However, depending on timing and the group, we would like to keep the option open for a second night/third day (Monday). If you are interested, let us know your preference Tentative itinerary: Day one, Blackcomb lifts to area of MacBeth Glacier; Day two to Russet Lake and out via Musical Bumps or Singing Pass trail. For a potential two night trip, the camps would be adjusted appropriately.
