Humpback Mountain


Alpine Scramble - Humpback Mountain

SeattleStudentScramble with preference for Seattle Pod I students.

  • Technical 3, Strenuous 3
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 5.2 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,600 ft

Meet 8:00 am near I-90 Exit 47. From the eastbound Exit 47 offramp turn right (south) and cross the bridge over the river. At the T intersection with Tinkham Road, turn right again and stop at the pullout on the right. There we will coalesce people into fewer cars for the rough ride up to the trailhead.

This is designed to be a first scramble trip for Pod I students, but if there is room we can take others as well. Be prepared for both snow and rock scrambling. We may practice self-arrest skills if we find a suitable location. Note that this is on Mothers Day.
