Don't remember much about the route - I do remember doing two overhanging raps on the way down.
On a recon. of Cave Ridge decided to parlay over to Guye. Wonderful blueberries, lots of exposure
Combined with Snoqualmie
This was a "winter" snowshoe ascent of the trail route. Alpental was still running the lifts this late in the season in 2006.
On the way down we ended up as the first responders in an accident we happened upon, making for a memorable trip.
a quick summit close to home
Cool looking peak that pops up quite dramatically-continued onto Snoqualmie and Lundin
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
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.
