This will be a Traverse of Pilchuck from East to West. Another group will traverse from west to east and we will meet them mid way and exchange keys. This trip approaches the summit from the east, passing Bear Lake, Pinnacle Lake, and the Bathtub lakes before running the east ridge. We will descend via the normal trail. The fall foliage should be gorgeous.
