Trip

Alpine Scramble - Mount Watson/Southwest Flank

Scramble to Mt Watson early enough in season before the blue ice is exposed. Got turned around last time in August. Varied scramble with snow, rock, route finding, and a bit of brush.

  • Moderate, Strenuous 3, Technical 4, Basic Alpine Climb
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 7.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,900 ft

Depending on where participants come from, will probably meet at Everett Station or 112th Street for car pools.  Meet at 6:00 am for carpool.  

I'll be looking for more beta as trip gets closer.  Suspect that crampons may be used on the approach to the saddle.
