Chinook Pass is closed so we'll park at Cayuse Pass and either take the road, the trail, or a combination of both up to the pass/peaks.  Everyone will need their ice axe, helmet, crampons and harness (or webbing equivalent) plus prusiks and carabiners because there's a good chance we'll use a fixed line on Naches, which has a significant step near the summit.
