Yakima Peak

Successful snow scramble

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Ideal route conditions for snow scramble today on record warm day

After scrambling Tahtlum, 4 of us elected to scramble Yakima.  Followed standard route from Rainier 100 book.  Snow in final gully was excellent for steps, and snow down to parking lot allowed for glissading to get from summit to car in 20 minutes.  Last 30' gain to summit safely done through trees with no exposure and enough space for shoulder width.
