Via the Little Joe Lake trail. Was unable to find a map of the trail online, and my old maps don't have it, so I added my route map to the photo gallery. (#981951)

Cascade Scrambler

Bagged this summit as summit number 5/10 in a contest put on by Sahaptin Outfitters out of Cle Elum. Ascended via the summer route, cutting off a bunch of miles. The spur road used to gain the rib towards the ridge is the most destroyed road I have ever seen. From the end of the road, I ascended the obvious rib towards the summit ridge. Once on the ridge, there are two clear options for the true summit, so I bagged them both. On the way back, I noticed that there's a third, obviously lower point, but a highpoint nonetheless, so I bagged it too. On the way down, rather than follow the rib to the road, I descended into the scree field and then scree surfed a couple hundred feet until I was in the basin above the end of the road. Good times.

BKWSummertime Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2011


Maybe your mid-sized Korean sedan will make it to the "trailhead" but ours did not. After bottoming out a few times we left the car a mile from the trailhead. The route was quick and painless. Nice day but the higher peaks didn't lose their clouds until we were on the way down.

Climbed in Winter while in high school with a few friends who thought I was trying to kill them. The summit ridge had many false summits and I lost a friend on each one until I was alone at the highest point.

Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2009


I could see the southern-facing red slopes of Red Mountain from miles away, and it was as if they were calling to me. After this hike, I proceeded further in my car to the Knox Creek Trail, for a summit hike of "Hard Knox".

Date Climbed: Feb 17, 2009


Nasty, cloudy conditions. Great exercise, though. I need to do it again when it's clear, the view should be gorgeous. I hiked in from the bridge and didn't see a single snowmobile. Cooper lake looked to be frozen solid. Great climb.

We had to park by the bridge, and were on snow all the way. We were lucky to only see a couple of snowmobiles on the road. 3700', 7 mi, 7 hr car-to-car

Climbed this with Dean on a very fun spring ascent. This was both a scenic hike and a good conditioner for the rest of the year.

Did this with SP member Eric Noel. We were able to park near the signed Trailhead and didn't hit a lot of snow until the 3800 foot mark and from then on it was all snow to the top. Carried snowshoes, crampons and ice axe but pretty much did a boot track all the way. (I let Eric lead a lot) : )
