This is a physically demanding trip. The climb up the ridge to Goat Lake is exposed to the sunshine and it is very dry. While there is water before the ridgeline and after the descent, the climb up the ridgeline is in the sunshine and steep. The descent down the scree field is about 1800 feet. One should bring a helmet, gaiters (for scree/rock) and may consider either treking poles or ice axe for balance on the descent. If you have any questions, please contact the leader: John Howard: 360 516 0222. Olympic Nat. Forest Pass is required for parking at Dungeness Trailhead.
