West Granite


Alpine Scramble - West Granite

A moderate snow scramble up the west ridge. In the interest of variety, we'll descend another way.

Depending on party enthusiasm and safety I'd like to traverse to the main Granite summit.  Whether we descend (winter/ridge) from there or return to West Granite for our descent depends on snow/weather conditions.

Please note that snowshoes are required.  For students looking for summit credit: this only counts for 1, even if we get to both peaks!

Further information will be e-mailed to party members once signup closes.
