The weekend is approaching, and I'm looking to get out. Interested in a multiday trip (have several ideas), or even a couple of day trips if time is an issue.

Ideas: Eldorado/Klawatti, Scramble peaks in the Enchantments, High peaks in the Pasayten Wilderness, Peaks in the Teanaway....etc.

If interested reply or PM me. I'll be at pub as well.

Brian

Hi Brian,

This is Kyle. We climbed Granite Peak together this past winter. Remember me? Anyway I would be interested in any of the climbs you mentioned. I especially like the Eldorado/ Klawatti idea. A climb of Pyramid and Snowfield Peaks would also be a cool option. I have all the appropriate gear and experience for any of these climbs.

Sorry man would love to go with you to any of those locations, but I've got to introduce a certain baby girl to her great grand mother in Portland. Have fun!

Hey Kyle, good to hear from you. I'm actually very intrigued with the idea of Snowfield. That one is high on my list, but I didn't think of it. Probably wouldn't have the crowds that I'm afraid Eldorado will have.

Ya snowfield has been on my list for many years and is my top choice, but like I said I'd be up for any of the climbs you mentioned also.

I would like to avoid the Icicle Creek area; it's likely to be a zoo next weekend.

Were you looking to spend two or three days climbing? I am free the entire 3-day weekend.

If we head up there I would want to take all 3 days, and hit as many of those peaks as possible. Colonial would be interesting too.

I'd be interested in a day trip! Can chip in for gas and have my own personal gear.

If you decide to do just one day, please get in touch!

Kyle,

Lets go with the idea of Snowfield. I've sent you an email to for more detailed gear/plans discussion.

If anyone else is interested, this is a trip with a lot of glacier crossing, some steep snow, and some rock scrambling. Apropriate gear needed. Nearly 8000ft of gain for Snowfield alone.

Brian you should scrap the plans and come to Juneau for some easier hiking/climbing. I looked into coming to Seattle for the long weekend but I didn't feel like paying $900 for what would effectively be a day and a half in town, so I'm going to Juneau. I'm out of here the first or second week of June and I think I'm coming back south. Unfortunately that may mean Los Angeles though, but hopefully Seattle.
