Mt Pugh

  • Aug 25, 2012 · 7:00 AM

This event is not a hike. It's an off-trail scramble on steep terrain (dirt and rock) with some sections of exposure where a fall could result in serious injury or worse.

Participants must have alpine scrambling experience and frequently hike difficult trails such as Mailbox Peak, Mt Si, and Granite Mountain.

    While Pugh barely qualifies as an alpine scramble, it's an exceptional peak which requires a great deal of physical exertion to summit. It took us 5 hours to summit and 3.5 hours to descend. Total elevation gain was 5,600 feet. Comfortable temps and minimal bugs made for an even more enjoyable day.

    Hi Brian, have you had good results in the past posting strenuous climbs on Meet Up? I have thought of putting climbs on the calendar but have been concerned about people’s preparedness for a hike like Pugh or Three Fingers.

      Via meetup, I've had success with finding qualified scrambling partners. Not every member knows the meaning of 'alpine scramble' which is why I created and use my 4-step signup process.
