Ascent Trip Report

This is a marvelous little half day climb that gets you well and truly into the thick of it. The road takes you up to almost 5000' and from there a trail leads a little more than a mile to a boulder field. Climb it, and some ledges, traversing and following a boot path. Frankly only gets up to Class 3 once or twice, in my opinion, and exposure is low. Climb took us about four hours, but could be faster if you hustled. Amazing views from the top, unfortunately obscured for us by smoke blowing in from the Methow.
