Howard Peak & Tolmie Peak


Alpine Scramble - Howard Peak & Tolmie Peak

  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 5,000 ft


leader permission only

the plan is tolmie lookout & peak , howard, rust ridge, alki crest and florence peaks  and then a swim in mowich if the weather cooperates.  this should be a fun trip to a place that is hopefully the least smokiest in our area.  you must be comfortable scrambling :>)

 * for all our climbs, if we do not change its date or destination (both possibilities are always on the table), one important note to make clear - we are very pragmatic with regard to weather and other factors like smoke. if the forecast is not favorable, we will either change destinations at the last minute or cancel the trip.
