While this will be a real scramble, with some off-trail brush and rock, it will also be a relaxed one. I'm deliberately planning a late start and to be done by late afternoon for those who want to get out and about on Saturday night. The peak is right up in Snoqualmie Pass, an hour from Seattle, so no need to get up at O'Dark O'clock. While our timing and pace will be relaxed, please be sure you are comfortable with off-trail travel and in decent condition: there will be some modest sense of exposure. This would be a good third graduation scramble (rock or other) for those who still need one. The forecast looks good. The views will be great. This is a good peak to know about for a quick getaway and a variety of routes.
