  • Winter Scramble
  • Elevation Gain: 3,800 ft
7:00 AM at Issaquah Transit Center Park and Ride

MEETING PLACE:
Meet inside the Issquah Transit Center parking garage on the first floor in the Northeast corner at 7:00 AM
Call me on my cell phone at 425-442-6411 if you are running late and want us to wait for you.

GEAR:
- CRAMPONS ARE REQUIRED. We will probably use them.
- ICE AXE IS REQUIRED.
- Snowshoes with agressive points on the bottom such as MSR.
- Avalanche Becon is required. I have an old one I can lend out, but you really should buy one.
- Avalanche shovel and/or probe. We should have 4 of each for the group.

ROUTE:
We will follow the trail to about timber line, then go up the ridge west of the western most gully. This ridge can get very icy and will most likely require crampons. This might change if we get a bunch of snow.

In the event of "considerable avalanche danger below 5000 feet", we will go up to the pass and go somewhere up there.
