This is an exploratory winter scramble. It is not open to students. We will park at the winter trailhead for Silver Creek, ascend the Siver Creek trail to ~3,600', then head up the 'obivous ridgeline' to the summit of Kachess Ridge. The plan is to run the ridgetop to Pt. 5,194. Looks reasonably avalanche protected. Figure ~11 mi., 3,500' of gain. We'll arrange carpooling for late sign-ups in Isaquah. Lynn Graf, is co-lead
