    In 2015, John, Roger and I organized a trip to the Northern Marianas
    Islands. The goal was to summit Agrihan (Agrigan) – the highest point
    in this US territory. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful – turned
    back by a cliff just 200 feet away from the summit ;( You can read
    the trip report on summitpost.

    Agrihan is located some 200 nautical miles north of Saipan.
    Consequently it is non-trivial to reach, and we found the summit may
    take some work to obtain – including lots of machete work. We are in
    the process of receiving authorization from the mayor’s office to land
    on Agrihan. We have also selected a ship to take us there in the May/June
    time frame. Tentative dates are May 23 – June 10. We are looking
    at staying on Agrihan for 10-12 days. If there is strong demand there
    may be a shorter overlapping “retrieval” trip of 5-6 days.

    We are posting to see if others would be interested in joining this
    adventure. Since the island requires renting a ship and authorization
    to visit, this is a unique opportunity to travel there and share the costs.
    If interested please reply to this topic or send an email to

    Thank you, Clint Kaul and John Mitchler
