Head up the south west slopes of Pt. 13,618 to it's summit. Traverse the ridge to the summit of 13,719. Then onto  Mt. Holy Cross Ridge summit. From there, we will continue to Mt. Holy Cross (14, 009'). We will go back to the summit of Holy Cross Ridge and then scramble down it's west ridge heading towards the direction of the Notch Mountain shelter. We will descend the multitude of switchbacks, leading to the fall creek trail, and follow that back to Halfmoon Trailhead.This will be a car shuttle, so we will need two vehicles. All participants must be self sufficient regarding gear, be capable of doing a minimum of 1000'/1 mi per hour on steep terrain. Must be comfortable and proficient scrambling, with equivalent and recent experience. It will be a long day, starting and quite possibly finishing in the dark.
