Email LIT ( with answers to the following questions for the registration passcode: 

1- Previous three class III scrambles with dates 

2- Last three trips to 13,000' with dates 

3- Current hiker classification. If you are not a C level hiker, do you think you can complete (and enjoy!) this trip? 


Mt Neva's north ridge is one of the Cooper scrambles (#40).  The ridge offers sustained class 3 scrambling with two brief sections of more exposure. Experience scrambling class 3-4 terrain with exposure is required.  The outing will take us ~8-9hrs so participants should also be comfortable with long days at elevation and covering ~1000' of elevation per hour on the approach trail.


The cooper route ascends the north ridge and descends via the south to a steep scree gully, hiking through the willows to rejoin the trail. Depending on group comfort, we may instead choose to descend the north ridge for more scrambling and less scree sliding/ bushwhacking.
