Experience Field Trip

Field trip: Alpine Scrambling Course

Experience Field Trip - Guye Peak, Snoqualmie Mountain & Cave Ridge (Alpental)

Day-long field trip to practice all scrambling skills. We will explore Guye Peak, Cave Ridge, and maybe East Peak/Snow Dome in search of snow and rock.

  • Strenuous 2, Technical 3
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 5.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,200 ft

Detailed email to come Wednesday or Thursday.

On this day-long field trip, you will practice and apply the skills taught at the earlier field trips as part of a live scramble trip up to a non-technical alpine summit. We will encounter snow and rock to hopefully practice snow skills, self-arrest, glissading, rock scrambling, down climbing, navigation, and decision-making.
