Ascent Trip Report

We left the parking lot at 6:35 am heading for Snoqualmie Mountain.
We made a couple of wrong turns, but quickly got back on track. We started making good process when we got to the saddle between Cave Ridge and Guye Peak.

The team reached the summit at 12:10, and by 12:30 we had the whole team on the summit.

We got back to the cars around 4:45, Students estimated 4 hrs down so they were right on track.

Wrong turns:
1. For the route on the way up, we crossed the stream at the first bridge crossing, and ended up hiking too much at the base of Guye before traversing over to Cave Ridge to reach the summit.

2. Once we got to the saddle, we traversed too much before going up that it got really steep. Should have gone up earlier.
