  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 25.24 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 9,260 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 8,795 ft

We will meet at the Ashway Park and Ride at 4 a.m on Friday morning.

This is a long scramble with a lot of elevation gain but is not technically difficult.  We will drive over early Friday morning and hike in and scramble Courtney Peak before making camp at the lake below Star Peak.  We will scramble Star Peak Saturday morning and move camp to the pond near Oval Peak.  Sunday we will get an early start and scramble Oval Peak and then return to the cars.  We will be getting back to Seattle late Sunday night.  This is not a good scramble for students who have not done long multi day trips, experience required.
