This is a great training hike with the added bonus of a fun, exposed scramble at the top.

I'd climbed the North Gully to ~50 ft below the summit in January and then made another attempt via the summer route in March but turned back because of avalanche conditions, so the summit felt good even though the visibility was lousy. I enjoyed the trail and the summit scramble was fun.

Fun conditioning hike with the bonus of a little scramble at the top. Always fun, though getting popular and crowded the last few times I've been up there.

Tried doing the North Face but my partners were sketched out on some icy rock and such, we got about 50-100 feet from the summit.

lcarreauPerfect conditions..  Sucess!

Sorry, but I can't see the reason for climbing it under icy conditions. I'll be honest.. it's scary enough under perfect
conditions, when the sun is shining & angels are singing.

Did it back in the 1980s with the Tacoma Mountaineers.

And, can't understand WHY they call it a "butte."
If you want to see a REAL butte, please come to Arizona!

Up on the ridge some snow on steep areas was slushy and troublesome. The scramble is super easy but pretty exposed.

If you slip on the scramble part you'll end up like hamburger when they find your body down below!

Cascade ScramblerEasy hike  Sucess!

Cascade Scrambler

This is an easy, laid back hike. The first time Rainier pops out, it feels as if you can almost reach out and touch it. My personal opinion is that the scramble up the summit block from the standard route is overhyped. Also, do yourself a favor and park on FS9020, unless you're using this for conditioning.

Happy to say that I actually summited this peak. I'm not the best scrambler in the world but I mastered this one. No lose rocks and the handholds and footholds are there. It is just that one short section that is the real challenge. Just don't make a mistake!!!!

Scrambling up is always funner than down.
Very few people on the trail for an I-90 corridor hike.

climbed it many times with friends and even the Boy Scouts, all in winter. We had good weather which made it nice. Actually, we were lucky.

Nice trail with a good scramble to keep it interesting. Good training day hike. Too bad it was so cloudy that day.
