Black Peak/South Ridge

A Grade II climb with class 4 rock and snow up to 30° to the summit of one of the higher non-volcanic peaks in Washington State. The approach passes multiple lakes where established camp sites can be found. The route has loose rock in many places therefore care must be taken to reduce the risk of party-inflicted rockfall. Times: 4-6 hr trailhead to camp, 4-7 hr camp to summit.
