Mount Pilchuck/East Ridge


Alpine Scramble - Mount Pilchuck/East Ridge

Fun all-day high alpine scramble with dogs!

  • Technical 3, Strenuous 3
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,800 ft

Meeting locale will depend where everyone is coming from but since we’ll be doing this as a car shuttle would prefer least both cars have high clearance and space for drivers.

Approach via Pinnacle Lake and Bathtub Lakes with upward scramble onto Pilchuck and descent via summer trail or whatever is easiest.

well mannered dogs are welcome but must be comfortable with some short sections of rock and steep slopes.  Talk with me ahead of time if bringing woof woof so we can make plans.
