Gunn Peak


Alpine Scramble - Gunn Peak

A one-day challenging scramble in the Wild Sky wilderness (rescheduled)

  • Strenuous 5, Technical 4
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 6.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,300 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 6,218 ft

Barclay Lake TH at 6:45am.  This will be a long day!

I've specified both weekend days; the day with the better weather will be chosen before signup closes.  This trip requires dry rock.  Preference will be to Saturday.  There will be some brush (shouldn't dominate our day) though we'll work together to stay on-route to avoid problems.  If things work out we may also attempt TailGunner or GunShy.  More information to come...

Regarding the leader-permission thing... successful applicants will have demonstrated two things: 1-demonstrated technical skill (previous successful ascents); and 2-fitness (successful ascents might work here too, though it might be even more convincing to tell me your recent Mt Si or Mailbox times with representative pack weights).  You need not be superman.  Thanks!
