Alpine Scramble - Kaleetan Peak/South Route

Strenuous but very beautiful one day traverse of Kaleetan Peak on July 16, 2016 that visited Snow Lake, Gem Lake, Chair Lake, Kaleetan Peak, and Melakwa Lake. Dropped car off at the Denny Creek trailhead before starting out from the Snow Lake trailhead (doing the traverse in this direction has less elevation gain). Total trip was ~15 miles, ~5000' elevation gain, in just under 12 hours.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Chair Lake had lots of snow (see photos), but almost none elsewhere.
