Alpine Scramble - Beefhide Butte & Séance Peak

This will be a 4 day trip to do several peaks in the Chelan Sawtooth range. These are fantastic viewpoints.

  • Strenuous 5, Technical 3
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 35.0
  • Elevation Gain: 8,500 ft


The original plan was to do Star and Oval Peaks, but fire damage along the approach trails prompted a change of plans.

June 21:  Drive to the TH and hike to a basin beyond Boiling Lake, where we will camp all 3 nights (3800' gain)

June 22:  Climb Beefhide Butte and Séance Peak

June 23:  Climb Finney and possibly another peak or two

June 24:  Hike out

I have specified that leader's permission is required, but if you have been any of my previous scrambles in the Sawtooths, you have permission to sign up.
