Norse Peak


Winter Scramble - Norse Peak

Come see why Norse Peak is my favorite winter scramble. It features a long ridge run with lots of amazing views and lots of challenges. Priority given to people who were signed up for my January 31th rained out trip.

  • Winter Scramble
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,900 ft
  • Pace: relaxed

South Renton Park and Ride lot at 6:00 am. We will meet at the southern edge of the lot, across from the McDonalds. Alternatively, if you notify me, you can meet us at the Safeway in Enumclaw at 6:45.

Destination subject to change due to weather, avalanche conditions, and the unending search for good snow closer to Seattle.
