Winter Scramble - Burnt Park Loop


Winter Scramble - Burnt Park Loop

A gorgeous ‘end of the season’ tour along alpine ridges and meadows connecting 4 distinct peaks: Burnt Park (Pt 6327), Palisades, Marcus, and Pt 6218 (the ridge NW of Marcus). This strenuous traverse (~5300’ gain, ~14 miles, 5 miles of it off trail) just might squeak by weather wise owing to this year’s El Niño.

  • Technical 4, Strenuous 5
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 14.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 5,000 ft

Arranged via email.
