Meet at Cle Elum Bakery at 8:45AM (1:45 hours drive from North Seattle)

Then, re-meet at Iron trailhead at 9:45.

Plan: 10AM start.  Take trail to Teanaway-Iron saddle, then take least technical route to Teanaway Peak summit.  (est 3 hours from cars).  Then return to  saddle and take trail to Iron (time permitting). 

Descend slope west of Iron. The serpentine gravel section is amazing.  I am hoping to find a way off the extreme west end of the serpentine.

Total time expected: 6:30 hours (based on past trips). So, back at cars expected by 4:30.  Could be as late as 5:30.

Rainy weather will cancel the trip.
