Cascade Scrambler#2  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2013

Cascade Scrambler

Bagged this summit as summit number 2/10 in a contest put on by Sahaptin Outfitters out of Cle Elum. Arrived to the TH after an early work day, and had the trail to myself. No snow until a couple hundred feet below the Koppen/De Roux saddle. Lost the trail at times beyond the saddle; had to kick steps up a sheer 15 foot vertical wall to gain the ridge towards the summit. The summit proper was dry; signed the register. I did meet one guy who came up after me who remarked he thought my steps up the snow wall were nuts until he too couldn't find a way around, then he followed my steps. Nice!

Views were gorgeous; I had planned on bagging De Roux also, but as I got started very late, I didn't have the time. Next time...

Went up with my girlfriend and a close friend of mine. Gorgeous views of the Stuart Range, Mt Daniel, and the Cascade Crest. Lots of butterflies on the summit.

Climbed with Eastking. A great destination/short hike when the I-90 corridor is shadowed in rain.

I did this with a foursome of good friends.Our original plan was Esmeralda but with a forecast of snow and high winds we opted for this. There was snow from the start with a foot and a half of fresh snow near the top. The winds stayed calm and we even had a few sunbreaks on and near the summmit. A great day!

Four tricky creek crossings down low, though none was too deep. Patchy snow started just below Medra Pass, making routefinding a little challenging at times. Amazing views from the peak!

We were going to go up Mount Defiance but wether was bad in the western Cascades. Great views considering we were not excepting much. Rain shadow plays a big role here in the Teanaway Region.
