7:00 AM at Sultan P&R
The goal is the peak labeled 'Spire 6065' on the Baring USGS. This is not Spire Mtn. proper but a sub peak. The idea is to approach from the Beckler River Rd. via the ridge to the north of Boulder Creek and El Capitan. Topo indicates a 12 mile round trip and ~5,400' of gain, though we may have less gain if we contour around some of the numerous bumps on the ridges. The feasibility of the trip will depend on road and parking conditions as well as the usual weather and avalanche constraints. Last minute changes are a distinct possibility. We will sort out the final destination and make any necessary remaining carpool arrangements at the P&R; in Sultan.
