Was attempting to do both. Made it up Big Craggy with no problems, but then the temperature reached triple digits and I could no longer apply enough sun screen or stay hydrated. After passing the 4th gendarme, I decided that the half liter of water I had left (out of 3.5 L at the start) might get me to the top, but I'd be severely dehydrated and fatigued going down, so I turned back having only bagged the higher of the two.
Only you can prevent party-induced rock fall!
I tackled this one with some Okanogan friends in a one day door-to-door from the wetter side of the state. We went straight up the southeast ridge of Big Craggy then opted out of West Craggy to be home in time for dinner. 3.5 hours up, 2 down.
Also, don't leave your helmet at home for this one (like I did).
Did with Fletcher and Joe. West up West Craggy First then traversed to Big Craggy, then down back to the trail. 8 hours RT from the trailhead
The one day ascent was no problem, thanks to an overnight stay nearby. Another fun outdoor adventure with Gimpilator.
One day ascent, high traverse route with Redwic. 9.5 hours round-trip.
Nice scramble. Great veiws. Very cold!
Cold and windy at the top, with some very large cornices to be wary of. Nice day out. Crux was crossing the bridge, it was washed out over the winter.
Great weekend for a Pasayten hike. Weather not too hot. Thunder boomers threatened but did not attack. The lakelets were down a couple of feet from the high water mark and they may disappear into the rocks at the end of a dry summer.
TH camp and day hiking the summit is a good plan.
We did the standard route up to the scree saddle after a camp at the ponds. Lots of scree and talus but not much scrambling. Long drive.
Great views of Isabella Ridge and the Pasayten Wilderness. Doable in a day from Copper Glance trailhead.
