  • Technical 3, Strenuous 3
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 9.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,400 ft

Carpool out of S Renton P&R (tentative time: 6:30am).  I have a pass; other vehicles will need a pass or pay park entry fee.

Optional additional peak: Slide, depending on participants interest/enthusiasm/energy.  This would add about 2 hours - 4 miles - and 1000' of elevation and make this a 4-fer.

I will post an e-mail of trip details to all participants after signup closes.

Haven't done these before, so encourage members be prepared to share in navigation.  Ice ax likely optional, but please bring to TH.
