Either south Renton Park & Ride (off Grady Way) at 7:00 AM or Longmire at shortly before 9:00.

Beautiful alpine terrain and generally far fewer people than you'd expect so near Paradise.  Often in winter conditions the summit requires the use of crampons.  If snow or weather conditions aren't appropriate, we'll change to an alternative destination.
