Alpine Scramble - Bryant Peak

Combined snow/rock scramble of Bryant peak (a snoqualmie 20!) in early June.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles

Great day with great team!  First mentored scramble for Rochelle Garcia by Emma Agosta.  New parking lot at Denny creek is fantastic and trail in great condition.  Denny creek crossing a bit dicey over two logs, but doable. IMG_5488.HEICTeam had brought water shoes but didn't use them.  Trail mostly snow free until right below Hemlock Pass.IMG_5500(1).JPG  A bit of route finding to do once snow started.  Snow in good condition with minimal postholing.  Route up ridge varied from dirt to snow.  Once reached boulders stayed to left on climbers path to avoid postholing and snow, but probably could've gone straight up snow. IMG_5501(1).JPG

Summit block was dry despite clouds and some drizzle on the way up. Clouds parted for a few views.  Took a different route down the rocks and mostly plunged stepped down the snow to the dirt ridge walk.  Fun day!  Most of pics thanks to Emma!
