  • Winter Scramble
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,000 ft
  • Pace: 1000 ft/hr

Will meet at the Marysville Ash Ave Park & Ride at 6th & Ash at 7:00 AM. 

I have not done this route before but based on beta, you can expect some steep slopes. To sign up for this scramble you should feel comfortable descending steeper snow terrain.  There is snow on the road above 1,000 so I am expecting that we will park here and go off trail from that point on.  That's why the elevation and mileage are higher than standard route.
