Great Cairn Mountaineering Trip

March 19-25, 2000

This was to be a trip to the Grassi hut, but weather conditions were not conducive to getting into the Grassi. So at the last minute we chose to go to Great Cairn instead.

The planning materials are pretty irrelevant since the plan was to go to the Grassi hut. Due to weather that was out of the question via fixed-wing plane and dubious via helicopter from Mica. I was able to identify this as an option, discuss it with the others, and change the logistics (all with no change in cost) in a half day Saturday, mostly from a discussion with Alpine Helicopter while they were grounded at the Fairy Meadows (et al) staging area Saturday.
