What is gOSAT?
The idea of gOSAT is to provide a variety of activities and/or hikes (short and long) that are for all members to participate in (depending on individual conditioning of course), separate from the GCC (Glacier Climbing Course). Activities are rated as to difficulty:
1. Easy - Good for young and old alike in fair hiking condition. Trails are generally in good condition. Very little elevation gain. For OSATers who prefer a slower pace, gOSAT (formerly "slOSAT") offers non-summit oriented serenity hikes from time to time. No need to rush during these gentle, yet invigorating hikes, chosen for their natural beauty and limited elevation gain.
2. Moderate - Someone in good hiking condition. Increased mileage and elevation.
3. Difficult - Someone in excellent hiking condition. Significant increase in mileage and elevation gain.
4. Advanced - Someone in excellent hiking/climbing condition. Trails may not always be available. Significant increase in mileage and/or extreme elevation gain and/or technical aspects of the hike included.
Keep Climbing Mountains and Don’t Slip!
