Pugh  Sucess!

Great clear fall day, nice views in every direction. Was kind of and pleasantly surprised that there really is a trail all the way up, aside from the short bit of class 3 where the ridge steepens.

Solo in a day  Sucess!

Clouds  Sucess!

Forecast called for party cloudy; had to settle for entirely cloudy instead. Trail is in great shape; only a few down trees, and only a few class 3 moves. Took 3 hours up, 2.3 down. The summit rock makes a great place to string a hammock :D

Labor Day Mad Dash  Sucess!

After suffering through three days of non-stop rain, when the sun broke on Monday of the long weekend we hightailed to Mt. Pugh. We were hoping for clear weather all the way up from but it socked in just as we began the scramble after the knife edge. Not to be deterred we continued on to the summit block and enjoyed some classic WA fog. Will definitely return when the weather forecast is bomb proof.

Nice Trail  Sucess!

We had Great weather and crystal-clear views.
The crux of the climb was crowd control on this particular day. There were about 25 parties on the mountain, including several implementing the 0.5 liter water bottle-only gear strategy. Perhaps it wasn't a coincidence that I only passed such groups on the lower portions of the trail.

Nice Trail & Scramble  Sucess!

This was more straightforward and quicker than I expected. Some clouds and a little pre-dawn mist-drizzle but still found decent views of the surrounding area.

Trail / Scramble  Sucess!

I tried this one last year in October, but had to turn around at Stujack pass due to snow. This time, I got an early start and made it to the trailhead at 7... the first one there. Motored up to Stujack in 2 hours and got rewarded with amazing views of mountain peaks rising from the clouds. The clouds completely burned off an hour later so I was super glad I went early. 3 hours up with several photo breaks. I loved the trail above Stujack, but was disappointed there wasn't a little more sustained class 3, only a couple small sections. I spent an hour on the summit having some chinese tea and taking in the views before someone else made it to the top. I left shortly before the other guy and he passed me on the trail bookin it pretty good. This got my competitive juices flowing for some reason so I picked up the pace and eventually caught up to him. I ended up pretty much running down the mountain 1 1/2 hours from the summit. All in all a fantastic day! I have a feeling I'll be back!

Stujack Pass and Scramble  Sucess!

Fun climb. Scramble was much easier than I was expecting, and quite rewarding. Used crampons/ice axe on steep snowfield. Enjoyable ridgeline traverse on trail. Summited with a few other folks I met along the way. Pretty sure 5300' is the most gain I've ever done in a day... A good day!

Pugh x 4  Sucess!

Four attempts between 2009 and 2011, three summits and finally one in clear weather. Definitely one of the cooler accessible scramble routes in the North Cascades.

Fantastic  Sucess!

One of my favorite climbs thus far. Amazing views, fun scrambling, and there was even a glider pilot circling the summit for nearly 20 mins.

Excellent Summit Trail  Sucess!

A snow dusting the night before made for a slow-go above Stujack. Slush on the way down.

Great!  Sucess!

A great walk! The trail is in perfect shape to boot. Decided to walk up this the day before North Twin Sister and was not let down.
