      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
      clintkaul at gmail dot com.

      Thank you, Clint Kaul and John Mitchler
