Granite Mountain Trail


Winter Scramble - Granite Mountain

Seahawks season is not promising, so let's scramble instead! New snow forecast on 12/4 will make this a winter scramble instead of a hike. Plan is to scramble directly up to Granite. Alternate option will be to scramble West Granite then hit the ridge over to Granite depending on conditions.

  • Strenuous 3, Technical 2, Strenuous, Winter Scramble
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 8.2 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,800 ft
  • Pace: moderate (about 1,000 ft/hr)

7:30am Pratt Lake trailhead

We'll have our first snowfall of the season on Saturday 12/4 and we should have a foot of new snow on the ground.  At this point, the plan is to take the Granite Mountain trail up to the top of Granite but if conditions are not acceptable, then we will take the Pratt Lake trail, ascend West Granite and then hit the ridge over to Granite.  Leader will communicate with participants on plan on Saturday evening 12/4.  Granite itself is exploratory for leader but we had a successful summit of West Granite last winter.
