Alpine Scramble - Earl Peak

Scrambled Pt 6549, southeast of Earl Peak, in fall conditions.

  • Road recommended for high clearance only
  • The spur road up Standup Creek has 5 waterbars.  No problem for a Forester but would be difficult with less clearance.

With a forecast of high winds, the goal was changed from Fortune to Pt 6549, a surveyed summit southeast of Earl Peak near the Standup Creek/Stafford Creek pass. This allowed for a wind protected approach.  The Standup Creek trail had 5 stream crossing, fine now but might be difficult in high water.  From the pass Earl is accessible by a less travelled route, as well as  Pt 6549.  Snow was continuous from ~5,800'.
