Ascent Trip Report

Hiked the Wonderland Trail over Rampart Ridge. We encountered sustained snow cover at about 3400'. Crossing Kautz Creek was no problem. The Wonderland Trail is washed out, in this area. To pick it up, head upstream. On the opposite bank, just above the island in the middle of the river channel, is a set of steps/switchbacks leading up the bank to the trail. We took the bridge across Pyramid Creek then hiked up the hillside on the trail to the next major creek crossing. From here, we headed more or less due west on snow to the major bump on the ridge north of Satulick's summit. Then we walked the ridge south. 8 1/2 hours car to car, including break at the summit.
