Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful day out in the mountains. School bus turnaround was already full at 0830 (!) so we started from the Mount Si TH.

Leisurely pace up to the top. We donned microspikes at about 4200' on the Kamikaze trail and walked up mostly packed snow to the top. We took the road trail down from the top and hit constant, slushy, slippery snow until about 3800'. No views at the top.

The rain came in as we were reaching the top. A bit of snow and rain mix at the top, and then constant light rain on the way out.

Ice axe not strictly necessary. I used it for a snow berm by a creek.

The falls were gushing!

Mt. Si Trail -> Boulder Garden Loop -> Lower Teneriffe Connector -> Teneriffe Mountain Trail -> Kamikaze Falls Connector -> Kamikaze Trail -> (summit) -> Teneriffe Mountain Trail -> Upper Teneriffe Connector -> Boulder Garden Loop -> Mount Si Trail.
