Tibbetts Valley Park 7am

This will be a full day scramble to the summits of Snoqualmie. We'll break at the top for lunch and then descend.

We'll take Snoqualmie trail until it crosses the top of the waterfall, then follow the creek up to its source in the valley between Snoqualmie and Cave Ridge. We'll hit the ridge near the north end of Cave Ridge and follow it NW to the summit of East Snoqualmie. From there, we'll descend to the col between East Snoqualmie and Snoqualmie and then drop about 20 feet down the north side, where there is this perfect ledge that takes you across the north face of Snoqualmie and puts you on the summit ridge about where the trail from Alpental does. Time permitting we'll then summit Snoqualmie west. Then descend the trail back down to Alpental.

If rain or smoke and an alternate more moderate destiation will be chosen.

This is a mentored lead trip for Joe
