  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi

This will be a good day, with navigational challenges, side-hiling, bushwhacking, scrambling and all out type II fun.   On top of that it is unknown how much snow has fallen and stuck up there.

Florence is the primary goal with a side trips to top out on Sweet and Alki.

It is important in the shoulder season to be prepare to stay overnight in the event of an accident.  Having a bivy, warm cloths and food for a night is imperative. 

This trip is subject to cancellation if I have to lead a Mountain Bike Trip or Snow conditions and weather dictate it so.
