      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Redstone Peak

Recommended Posts

I'm curious about this little peak in the north end of the park (on Northern Loop Trail; SE of Windy Gap). Anyone out there seen it up close or climbed it? I might like to attempt Redstone Peak this fall or winter, but it's 6 miles of trail then 1 mile off-trail to get to it, so don't know if it's worth it this time of year.

I haven't climbed it but according to the beckey book, and looking from Independence Ridge, it is minor rock scramble. The book concurs with what others have stated about the approach, which is from behind the ranger cabin the peak isn't too far of a climb. You can also access the trail to Redstone Peak from FS 74. You should be able to get a map from Enumclaw. This shortcut will make it about 2-3 miles from the car to the cabin and then to the peak from there. Sorry I don't about what type of rock it is.

Not much of an event in itself. Suggest doing it in summer and combine with Sluiskin Chief then scramble down the ridge to Redstone, an easy scramble. It's Rainier, rock almost always sucks.
