My buddy Mark led it, its was fun!
A nice great place to train while getting away from everyone.
Climbed from the north, in snowshoes, and traversed out on the west faces thinnest ridge. Very fun
Every guy should climb Guye...summer and winter. Pictures and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/snoqualmie_pass/guye_peak/alpental_ski_208.htm
But ended up climbing past the traverse and up a variation straight to the top of the 4th class ramp after the traverse. Noticed it a bit too late, but the climbing seemed to be more sustained and interesting than the traverse looked.
A cold and cloudy day! A nice place for some peace and quiet!
An awesome day up on Guye Peak...gorgeous views....
Climbed some weird combination of routes in August of 2007 - we went up the big talus field below the West face, traversed north to some gully, followed the gully (cl. 3) until it steepened. Traversed south onto some diagonal ramp with trees with some climbing that required a rope. Simul-climbed out of the ramp and up through each summit. Climbed again in July 2008 via the South gully. Fun off-the-beaten-path scramble with some interesting route finding.
Lots of snow this year!
Nice short steep trip to the north summit! Good views of Chair Mountain and Denny Mountain as well as to Silver Peak.
A long slog through DEEP snow caused us to abandon our attempt on Snoqualmie Mt. and bag Guye Peak instead.
Bruce and I climbed this fun route in about 7.5 hours car to car yesterday. Snow conditions varied from powder over crust to hard crust and neve to wallowing in deep powder near the top. I lead both mixed pitches which were pretty interesting. The travese between the 3 summit towers is cool. Good times.
I highly recommend the Family Pancake house afterwards.
This is a nice short trip. Stay to the left of the lake near the top if you want to keep your hands clean. Go right if you want to do some easy scrambling. After reaching the north summit, we back tracked a few feet and descended the gulley described in the "Climbing Information" section of this page. We agreed that the scramble back up to the middle summit looked like 4th class, so we didn't attempt it without a rope.
Done with a small OSAT group as a combination with Snoqualmie Mountain, from the Alpental approach. This day brought me to within 39 feet of my first 100,000 vertical year (eventually accomplished on Mt. Si in November.)
Something I didn't like about climbing a rock and being able to still see a major interstate. I like being a little farther away. But we brought the kids & they liked it. Gave us all a good workout!
short up and down but felt good afterward
Started early and finished the climb in two hours. Took the wrong gully down the backside which made for a more eventful descent then the ascent. Still a very fun climb and easily simul-climbed. Came back the next day to do the improbable traverse but got rained out. Gotta love the cascades.
went up with neighbor in the morning before work.
Fun mountain, good step kicking practice.
