Alpine Climb Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Looking for suggestions for a good, one to two day alpine climb in the Cascades, probably more towards the eastern parts of the range. For the group that is going, probably nothing harder than 5.7. If there are a few good climbs in an area that could be hit from a single base camp, that would be ideal as well (and the hot springs, and the perfect tent spot, and the perfect cooking rock, and nice views of everything, and... bigdrink.gif).

 

thoughts?

You could spend three days in the Washington Pass area- camp at Klipchuck or Early Winters campgrounds and hit thibgs like Liberty Bell, Kangaroo temple, La Petit Chaval/Sponteniety arete (search the site for a topo) and Golden Horn.

Prussik Peak is the obvious, quick answer but you probably already have that one on your list (tons of other stuff near there, Witches Tower being one).

 

For a bit more adventure you could check out Norht Face of Chimney Rock. Approach via Dutch Miller Gap trail (via the notorious, soon to be gated, Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road). Camp up near the Overcoat Glacier. Overcoat Peak could also be bagged from up there.

 

Boston Basin (West Ridge Forbidden, Sharkfin Tower, Mt. Torment).

 

N Ridge Foggy Peak and E Wilman's Spire via Glacier Basin.

 

Sawhorse Tower and Columbia Peak via Twin Lakes.

All great options . . . but best wishes in getting a permit for Boston Basin over 4th of July weekend!!!

 

Or Prussik Peak, for that matter . . .

 

Silverstar might be a good call -- Could climb SS and one of the Wine Spires (Chablis has a good 5.6 route, I hear)...
