Ingalls Peak/South Ridge


Basic Rock Climb - Ingalls Peak/South Ridge

Preference to Foothills or Seattle/McCarthy-Johnson SIG Basic students needing rock climb for graduation. Everyone else is asked to wait until July 1st to sign up.

  • Basic Rock Climb, Strenuous 2, Technical 2
  • Easy
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi

Esmeralda Basin Trailhead, 0600.

  • If you are a rope lead, feel free to register.
  • Do not register before July 1st if you're not a Foothills or Seattle/McCarthy-Johnson SIG Basic student needing rock climb for graduation.
  •  If you do not pass Rock 2 satisfactorily, I will remove you from the roster.
  • This trip depends on the leader obtaining a Climb Leader badge after his mentored climb on June 30th. If that doesn't happen for some reason, I will try to find a leader or cancel otherwise.
  • The pace will be easy but it should be a long day, so be prepared.
