Ascent Trip Report

Path to Trailhead is clear of snow.

Started at 7:15 am.

Turn left after 1st stream and go up to the ridge that heads South East towards North Chiwaukum.

Lots of bushwacking over downed logs. Would recommend going when there is more snow.

Follow the ridge up to North Chiwaukum. Then follow the other ridge to middle Chiwaukum.

No crampons were needed. Snowshoes helped on the descent when the snow was getting very wet.

Summit at 1. Back to car at 4.
