Route Climbed: Standard Scramble Date Climbed: September, 2003  Sucess!

Dog and wife accompanied me on this terrific sunny day to the old lookout site at 6000'. From there it becomes somewhat technical. I would call this an easy scramble if it were not for one gully heading over to the summit and the need for excitement that I suggest by taking the ridge back from the summit to the old lookout site. This route will require some free 5.6 climbing on loose rock, but is more enjoyable then descending back down to the scree.

Unlike the Canadian Rockies (7500'), you break out of tree line at 5500'. The views of Mt Baker on the way up have to be the best in the park. There is a register and summit marker. I took the ridge back all the way. Up and down, but nothing to technical for a moderate to difficult scramble.
