Nice rocky scramble
I kinda like this one more than I thought I would. This is a mountain you don't really have to think on. The route just happens and you get to the summit. If you mess up the route, no big deal. It just works. There was a burn scar section with a ton of blow downs. Walking through that section was like walking on moon dust (or at least I imagine that is what it feels like). There are quite a few water sources along the way so filtering is easy. I always love the solitude you get in the Chelan-Sawtooth area. Just chill climbers and no flip flops. Speaking of footwear, first summit of the year in trail runners!
Climbed this with a friend of mine after camping at Libby Lake, and climbing around (but not summitting) Raven Ridge. Great views and a great confidence booster for people without much scrambling experience.
It was a nice relaxing trip before my Peru adventure.
I solod up Hoodoo and Raven Ridge amidst perfect larch foliage. Golden larches were everywhere and it was a beautiful, warm october day. Went up Hoodoo first, then ran up Raven Ridge. 6.5 hours round trip from the TH for both peaks.
Heather, Fletcher and I hiked up these peaks. We were snowed on for awhile at Libby Lake. The gully up to Ravens Ridge was steep, loose, and horrible.
Though only Class 2 this constant boulder scramble on the ridge to the top tired me out. Thankfully I had Josh Lewis there to help me through on this peak.
