7:30 AM at Exit 54 the Hyak area parking lot
THIS IS NOT THE USUAL ROUTE! Silver Peak via Windy Pass, (USGS Snoqualmie Pass) 10 to 12 mi., 3,000' to 3,500' gain. This trip is for 2011 Seattle Branch Scramble students. Others require leader permission. In addition to having fun we will review skills, including navigation. Trip can range from a 3-3 to a 4-4, depending on seasonal conditions and route variations. Ice ax and helmet required. MEETING PLACE: Take Exit 54 and turn right at the bottom of the off-ramp. There is a big dirt parking area right there at the interstection, near Hyak. We will promptly carpool from Hyak up a primitive road to Windy Pass TH on the PCT (Or as close as we can get if the road still has snow). Up to a moderate pace, but don't complain if it's a bit slower! CO-LEADERS: Glen Ferguson and Steve Russell.
