This scramble is part of the Mountain Queers weekend at Baker Lodge, although other LGBTQ+ identifying people and friends are welcome to join as a day trip.

We will follow the Ptarmigan Ridge trail to Coleman Pinnacle's south ridge where we head off trail and begin our scramble. The scenery along the route is stunning, with in-your-face views of Mt. Baker and brilliant fall foliage at this time of year. The scramble itself is a bit exposed but the rock is solid.

If the conditions are poor (rain, ice, or snow) the activity may change to a hike in the same area, or be cancelled.
