You'll feel like you're on top of the world, gazing down at the summit of Chair Peak, more than 20 feet below you.

  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 12.0 mi

We will plan on a loop trip for interest, scrambling up the more challenging white ledges, and returning to Melakwa Lake via the south ridge.  Scramblers should feel comfortable with some exposure and T4 level rock scrambling.
