Basic Alpine Climb - Chair Peak/Northeast Buttress

Turned around due to conditions. Great conditioning hike!

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Snow Lake and scramble above Source Lake snow free. Snow in basin beyond the Thumbtack 

Met at 0530 at the Source Lake/Alpental Trailhead. On the route by 0600. Took the Source Lake trail and then the climbers trail. Reached the Thumbtack at 0820. Visibility was about 200 feet with some light rain. Double checked the forecast, saw that it might get better for a few hours, but then the clouds would come back in by noon. Decided to turn around at this point. Back at our cars at 1030
