9am I-90 Exit 42 lower West Defiance trailhead (Road to Ira Spring TH closed weekdays for logging)

This is a mentored lead scramble for Chris Pribbernow. We will ascend a very steep and loose boot path up Putrid Pete's Peak. From there, we will follow the ridge west to Web Mountain.

The route up is steep and loose, and the pace will be slow to moderate. Most of the route, even along the ridge, is fairly non-technical with mainly side-hill and cross country travel.

Notice: The road to the Ira Spring Trailhead is currently closed on weekdays. Therefore, we will have to start at the lower trailhead at Exit 42 which adds an extra mile each way and about 800 feet of gain up.
