RedwicCabinet Creek Approach  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2017

Before joining up with Gimpilator at the saddle camp, my team ascended the eastern side of Cabinet Creek, which was much more gradual, straightforward, and less brushy than the western side (which we descended the following day). However, the big downside is that Cabinet Creek must be crossed at ~4500' elevation, and the easiest way to do so during spring conditions is to cross the smaller streams forming the major creek, so at least two crossings are required. As for Elija Ridge itself, it is a great peak that presented more challenging terrain than any of us had expected due to poor snow conditions above 6800' as well as higher level scrambling near the summit than we realized. Overall, it was a successful summit climb and the views were spectacular.
