6:30 AM at North Bend
Meet at the plaza Starbucks(near clock tower) in North Bend (exit 31) in order to consolidate riders. Drive 2 hours to Ingalls Lake Trailhead (4200ft). Hike trail to Ingalls Pass (6500ft), head toward upper Headlight Basin with possible refill of water bottles in runoff streams and then continue up to Fortune Peak(7382ft). Continue on to South Ingalls(7640ft) via the ridge from Fortune. Return to Headlight Basin and hike the trail to return to the trailhead. Plan to return to the trailhead by 7:00. The skinny: 12 miles, 4100 ft gain, S4/T3. Northwest Forest Passes needed. Helmets required. Gear up-date as the scramble date approaches. Note: my moderate pace means steady, not slow and not too fast, and with short (5-10minute) breaks enroute. Expect one longer break enroute to South Ingals (15 minutes) and some summit time as weather allows.
