Baldy & Tyler Peak


Alpine Scramble - Baldy & Tyler Peak

Overnight snow camp and scramble of Tyler, Peak B, Baldy and maybe Gray Wolf. Priority to canceled May 17 - 19 Baker climbers and Kitsap scramble students with winter camping experience.

  • Strenuous, Rock Scramble, Strenuous 3, Technical 3
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 11.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,600 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 6,800 ft
  • Pace: 1000ft/hr

7:30 a.m. at Longhouse Deli east of Sequim Bay State Park for carpooling, or TH 8:30 a.m.

We'll take the Tyler Peak trail up to the jct (2.5mi, 2500ft), head to the ridge to scramble Peak B, possibly leaving backpacks at the base. Then we'll traverse over to the treed saddle between Tyler and Baldy, where we'll camp, likely on snow. After setting up camp, we'll go for Baldy in the afternoon.  If conditions look favorable, we may also go to or partway over to Graywolf Peak (hence the need for ice ax and crampons).

We'll wake up at a reasonable but leisurely time on Saturday, break camp, head back the way we came and scramble Tyler Peak before heading down in mid-morning.
