Cadet Peak


Alpine Scramble - Cadet Peak

A challenging but worthwhile scramble in the Monte Cristo area surrounded by high summits. Please read leader's notes before signing up. Bikes REQUIRED.

  • Strenuous 5, Technical 4
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 16.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 5,140 ft

Barlow Pass Parking Lot @ 7 AM

We will ride our bikes on the approach from Barlow Pass parking lot to the old mining township of Monte Cristo (~ 8 miles RT)  and lock them there. 

Please research the route but generally speaking, once we get to Glacier basin from Monte Cristo we will be off-trail and on steep terrain pretty much the entire time.

Expect a long day!
While this could be a cool graduation peak, I would highly recommend  only interested students with a few scrambles under their belt should sign up.

Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions.
