On Friday of this Memorial Day weekend, we will meet at the Lena Lake trailhead at 3 PM. Traveling from Seattle, you will need to depart around 12 noon. From the trailhead (650’), we ascend about 2,500 feet over 6 miles to camp (3,160’). Summit day is a long day – about 12 to 13 hours! We’ll get up early for an alpine start, climb to the summit, return to break camp, and head out all in the same day.
