Highlands Backpacking Expedition
July 21, 2018 - July 22, 2018Free
Two days of alpine style mountaineering with Hallie Zolynski of The Nomadic Ice Axe. We will be staying in tents at the base of Red Mountain, south of Butte, Montana, with a pre-dawn climb to watch the sunrise from the top. The climb up Red Mountain requires moderate physical fitness. Veterans can choose to only do this part of the climb or continue on.
From there we will head up and over two more prominent summits to Table Mountain, a rock scramble with steep drop offs. The second half requires strong fitness levels and good knees, backs and ankles.
Gear provided by The Nomadic Ice Axe. Food provided by Staggering Ox and Xsports4Vets.
Free for veterans with proof of deployment to and area of imminent danger.
