A beautiful winter scramble on the east side of Snoqualmie Pass. The focus of this trip is on navigation using map and compass. Please plan to take an active part in route-finding. While the goal is Mt. Baldy, we'll first summit peak 4942 (Para Point) then follow the ridge to Baldy as time allows.

Tip destination my change or the trip may be cancelled due to weather conditions, avalanche conditions, or snow conditions.

This navigation practice and conditioner is being led mainly by Danielle and Beth.
