Ascent Trip Report

In pennance for being hungover I went on a solo march around Commonwealth basin. The third peak from the right is Lundin. Teh ridge line east of Lundin is easily reached from the old PCT. Beckey gives an excellent description of the loose and exposed heather walk/scramble over to the beginning of the summit ridge. If you go solo don't be deterred by the huge bolts and memorial plaques (yes, plural) along the route. It is an easy scramble up and a pleasant summit. Traversing over the top to get to Snoqualmie is the easiest way (although long) to get back to the road. A short rope is helpful to get off the west end although not absolutely neccessary.

Beckey writes of a three pitch 5.7 on the west face. We did one pitch of heinous 5.7 sandbag, then eventually bailed when we decided it just wasn't worth it.
