Have you had to spend a night outside without a
tent? If not, here is your chance to try. Come bivvy near the third peak of
the chief with the most excellent company (ACC/VOC), and then join us for
breakfast early on Saturday morning. The VOC are celebrating 100 years of
their club pretty soon, and this joint event will help kick of a week of
celebrations for them.
We'll meet at 7:00pm on Friday, hike up the
backside trail to Slahney, and then traverse the to
third peak to setup camp for the night.
Rules & Logistics

- No backpacks allowed (get creative).

scrambling up the via-ferrata.

Food will be provided by the club, but we'll be
asking for a small donation towards parks for
anyone that can afford to do so.
- Group camping strategies are acceptable and
encouraged, but we won't help facilitate the
discussions on who who gets to be the "middle
sandwich layer" or "big spoon". Make some friends
and make it happen!
- We will have a backpack with first/aid supplies
and extra gear, food & water stashed away nearby.
If hits midnight and you realize you made a big
mistake, we can likely help (and worst case
scenario it's an easy one hour hike down), but
there is an onus on you to attempt to stick it
- There will definitely be hot chocolate at night
and dessert in the morning for anyone that manages
to bring a musical instrument (you also have to be
able to play it though).
- There is a prize for the most creative bivvy.
Email Brian with your questions about this event or
just about cuddling in general after August 6th
(he's currently in the mountains).
LNT Ethics, so anything you bring with has to be
packed out and we'll have some wag-bags handy if
you just can't wait.
Looking forward to memorable night, hope you can
