Ian CulhaneA short afternoon scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 26, 2015

Ian Culhane

A great short climb for those looking for an exciting yet relatively easy scramble. The route is really more of a very steep trail than a class 3 scramble; there is really only one 10' section near the top that requires real use of your hands (many other parts have exposure, but by following the well marked trail you shouldn't ever be in any real danger). Got a fairly good view from the summit; the weather wasn't ideal (cloudy with freezing cold wind). Saw two white-tailed ptarmigans about 50' from the summit; the cold didn't seem to bother them in the slightest. 2 hours going up, 1 hour for the decent.

We left the trailhead after 4pm and got back just in time. Certainly less than half a day. Only one class 3 spot near the very end.

Quick scramble up, didn't enjoy the exposed loose dirt on rock. Amazing climbing trail, just don't step off! http://www.willhiteweb.com/north_cascades/white_chuck_mountain/map_164.htm

Went up standard with my brothers Zach and Josh. Rex tagged along but he was shaky on some of the looser rocks. The downfacing slab section was anxiety inducing but we all made it fine. Great views up there and a beautiful sunset. Can't speak to much about the bugs other than we all hated them. Neat summit for half a day.

I had been wanting to do this peak with friends for a while, but most of my friends had already done it. It was not enjoyable being solo on the slanted rocks; I really did not get to enjoy this peak as well as I could have because I was so focused on the tasks at hand.

Very enjoyable hike. The scenery both of surrounding mountains and White Chuck itself are fantastic. The exposure is more psychological than anything else... you have a view of a huge dropoff for about half of the hike, but you never have to get very close to it and I wouldn't even say there is any class 3 apart from the notch.

This is a very fun climb, but don't believe the hype- there's an easy to follow boot path to the summit. Exposure is overrated- don't make a careless move, and you'll have no problems. Due to fog, visibility ranged from 25 feet to about 200 feet, and never got better until nearly back to the car. I'd do this one again to take in the views.

What a fantastic place- special to be able to drive so high in Snohomish. Tested out my knee and went well-1.5hrs up. gorgeous flowers and great views. So much to do on Mtn loop.... the list gets longer.

Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2011


TH at 7:45am, summit 9:30am. Ascended above the cloud deck leaving the drizzle and cold @ 5,500' and was rewarded with sea of peaks. A great summit, quick and simple, I will be back for sure!

Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2011

Brian Jenkins

Climbed with Ron (thundercloud), Nina and Grant. We missed the grassy gully that takes you off the lower ledges up closer to the crest of the ridge to the notch and instead did scary ledges to the south face of the mountain, found our own notch and scrambled up to the summit from there. Some really exposed moves, much moreso than the normal route. Cool moat and cave behind it though. Found the correct route down and then had to do the scary ledges again to retrieve our trekking poles. Very buggy day but fun with a good group. Burgers and shakes in Darrington after!

BKWMorning Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2010


Got to the summit by 8am and was back at work in Bellevue by 12:30. I must have been off the mountain by the time gimpilator arrived (preceding entry). The commitment/fun factor of this mountain is extremely low; I wonder why it's not more popular. The frosty, icing, and/or wet rock made for some intesting scrambling, especially on the sections of exposed slabs. Great weather and great views.

gimpilator2 Successful Summits and one failed attempt  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2010


The first time I tried this one (9/1/08), runoff from snow-melt on the slabs caused Raymond to take a fall, so we turned around.

I went back with Beau 2 years later (9/22/10). Lots of exposed slabs and ledges and lots of fun.

The second time I went to the summit was (8/6/13) with Bryan and Natasha.

beaudaddy85Great NW Ridge!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 11, 2010


Decent conditions... A little slick and loose rock with exposure made it a slow descent. Cloud line was at 6,800'... Made for blue skies and sun on the summit... Didn't want to leave!!! Came back on 9.22.10 for an evening summit with Gimpilator and then again on 9.30.10 for yet another amazing evening summit with CHAMmccutchen. Click on the trip report below;

Perfect weather. When you reach the base of the first gully, go to the right, not up.

One of the best viewpoints around. From the base this looks like a very serious scramble but it actually turns out to be almost all class 2 and mostly a walkup. White Chuck is probably even worth of a repeat.
