Alpine Scramble - Mount Watson

This is a very nice Alpine Scramble which is mostly off trail. Will travel on both snow and rock.

  • Strenuous 3, Technical 4
  • Easy
  • Mileage: 6.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,000 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 6,234 ft

Meet at the trailhead. I plan on being there the night before.  Parking lot may be full and may need to park down hill of actual trailhead.

Meet at 6:45AM for group meeting, and then be on the trail at 7AM.

There is one moderately steep section of snow that will most likely require crampons.  The run out is good but long.

Summit is small so only one person at a time on the summit.

Proof of Covid-19 vaccination is required.
