Seattle Climbing

Mike Warren   (Qualified Youth Leader)

Proceed up the glacier to the snowfield above, then onto a ridge. Ascend NW up the ridge to the false summit. Cross the false summit and climb NW about 900' to the summit. Use wands to mark the route for the descent. To ascend the morraine, travel parallel to it at its base, into scrubby pines, where a climber's trail leads up to a low point on the morraine crest. Note that this is a long climb with considerable elevation gain. It can be done car to car in one day, but camping at the 7,600' or 8,600' level makes it more pleasant. The climb is often done in 2 days, but due to the long drive, many parties allow 3 days. Access may be limited before July 1. As of August 2000, Trout Lake RS collects $15 per climber fee for climbing above 7,000' elevation.
2013 SIG climb for Warren/Wallace SIG group. Email leader [] 2 weeks prior to inquire as to any openings. First choice for rope leaders will be those active with the Warren/Wallace SIG group.
