Tahtlum Peak


Alpine Scramble - Tahtlum Peak

Relatively short snow scramble, with option for second peak.

  • Technical 3, Strenuous 2
  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)
  • Mileage: 6.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,600 ft

Enumclaw Safeway on 410 7:30 a.m.

Preference to Tacoma branch scramble students through 5/20. 

In addition to scrambling Tahtlum, we will allow time for students to practice ice axe arrest. 

For those interested in a 2nd peak, we will also have the opportunity to scramble Yakima Peak on the other side of 410, adding another 800' of gain for the day, and likely offering rock credit to students.
