Norse Peak


Alpine Scramble - Norse Peak

Snow Scramble to a 100 Mt. Rainer Peak. Might not be a ton of snow left but we'll still plan on the side of caution for my first scramble of the season. This is a Phase 2 trip.

  • Strenuous 3, Technical 2, Snow Scramble
  • Moderate

Meet at 7am at Safeway in Enumclaw.  We will have a socially distanced pre-meet then drive up to the trailhead.

Please be sure to read and accept Covid-19 guidance.  Information can be found here:  Please make sure you bring your face covering and hand sanitizer.

I go at a moderate pace -- fast enough to keep the heart pumping, but with breaks as needed for snacks, water, and photos.
