8:30 AM at Meet at the end of the Sunrise Mine Road (#4065)
Sign-up only if you have completed at least one snow scramble. The ascent on steep snow to and (especially) the descent from the couloir east of Headlee Pass requires skill and care. Unrelated to that, the log crossing of the Stillaguamish River will require care. There continues to be a considerable amount of fast moving water in the river. Mother nature has apparently removed the good crossing logs. Please be ready to go at the 8:30. The travel time from Seattle is close to 2 hrs. The speed limit on the Mtn Loop Hwy is 45 mph.
