View of the summit blockWe will meet at the Church Mountain TH at 8 AM. Those wanting to carpool from Seattle, we can meet at 65th/Ravenna at 5 AM. Please let me know by e-mail where you plan to meet and if you would like to ride or drive. 

Though we will move at a moderate pace, the area from the old lookout to the summit will be challenging because of the scree/talus gullies which we need to cross to get to the true summit. If you are uncomfortable with exposure this is not the trip for you. With that said, it is well worth it to attain the summit! I have summitted in 2012 and am familiar with the route. e-mail questions to
