Howard Peak & Tolmie Peak


Alpine Scramble - Howard Peak & Tolmie Peak

Howard - Tolmie - Alki Crest - Rust Ridge- Florence Peak scramble

  • Technical 2, Strenuous 4
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 12.1 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,350 ft

TH at 8AM. 

** I've not marked this as leaders permission required, but remember we'll be moving fast and aim to do it in under 9-9.5 hours** 

This will be a long and sternuous hike but an easy scramble across all these peaks. Primarily aimed to bag all these peaks. 

If i can get another leader- we might aim to do a car shuttle and a key exchange. Or else it will be an out and back. We'll pack light and move fast on this one. 

Below is the trail that i plan to take based on an earlier report from 2017 by Bret Dyson
