Mount Rose


Basic Snowshoe - Mount Rose

A romp up good ole Mount Rose. Meant to be a conditioner for Olympia Basic Climbing AND Scrambling students. PLEASE READ THE LEADER NOTES AND PLEASE DON'T CONTACT ME UNTIL THE REGISTRATION OPENS.

  • Very Strenuous, Winter Scramble
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 6.4 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,500 ft


I've added an 11 essential to the equipment, snowshoes. You WILL need them for this. Trekking poles I find helpful but are optional. I would like to make this a more strenuous trip. Stopping only twice; once at Horse Camp and once at the top.
