Jumbo Mt is east of Whitehorse Mt and about 4 miles south of Darrington. The goal of this trip is to summit the middle peak of Jumbo Mt from the West Route (Squire Creek Rd). Ref: Cascade Alpine Guide Volume 2, Third Edition, pages 122-123.

This trip is 100% off trail, so we’ll be route finding from the moment we leave the road. Sorry, no students. Seasoned scramblers only-this one is challenging. Participants must be competent and efficient ascending and descending steep hard snow with crampons while self belaying with ice axe. Snow and rock S4-T5.

If there is significant precipitation in the forecast or avy concerns, our destination will change to something appropriate for the given conditions.

Required Gear (no exceptions): Ice axe, helmet, CRAMPONS, and snow shoes with aggressive point on the bottom, such as MSR.
