Weather permitting, I'd like to have a go at Merchant Peak on Sunday. This summit is off Route 2 in the Barclay Lake area and involves about 4000' of 3rd class scrambling. The route follows a system of gullies which are quite loose in the later season, but should be filled with snow currently.

The freezing levels will be lowering this week, which I hope will reduce snowmelt and firm up conditions in the gully system on Merchant.

Party-inflicted rockfall is a real concern on this route, so I don't want to have more than four people (including me) along for the ride.

Gear:
- helmet
- ice axe
- crampons

I can drive and take everyone + gear.

If things are looking bad weather-wise on Sunday as the week goes on, I'll be looking at other objectives.

Brian, I'm tentatively interested - provided that the weather is OKish, not good enough for a volcano (which I was originally planning), but good enough for a lower peak like Merchant.

I'd love to join in as well, if there's still room.

Not 100% sure yet, it depends on how much work I get done before I fly back to Italy... Not much if I keep on wasting time surfing... ;)

So the weather forecast for the end of this week is for substantial new snow above 4000' (probably around 6"). Given this, I think Merchant is probably out due to the 3rd class rock at the summit. (I don't think the gully is sufficiently aesthetic to warrant a climb on its own merits)

If the Mountain Loop opens at Deer Creek, I'd suggest that we have a go at Morning Star Peak or Stillaguamish. If not, maybe Mt. Bullon outside of Darrington? I'm open to suggestions.

Is there a good chance that MLH will open up?

I'm up for anything, just need to get out.
