Escarpment/Squaw High Camp

The Run and the Ride each operate a checkpoint above Squaw Valley, close to the top of the tramway. (The exact location may vary depending on snow conditions.) From here, it is about a 1/2 mile climb to the ridge at Watson's Monument, entryway to the Granite Chief Wilderness.

The Run refers to this checkpoint as The Escarpment. The Ride calls it Squaw High Camp. Neither event attempts to track participants as they pass this point, except to keep a total count. Comm capabilities are used for emergencies only.
