10:30 AM at North Creek TH
We will be scrambling Gilbert Mtn. in the North Cascades (not to be confused with Curtis Gilbert of the Goat Rocks). The plan is to make a leisurely two day trip of it. The first day we will hike in ~6 miles, gaining ~3,000' to the mining site west of North Lake. The second day we will ascend the ridge to the south, do an extended high ridge top traverse, which reportedly is not overly technical, to the 8023' summit of Gilbert, in all something like 2,000'of gain. We will then return to the campsite and hike out.
