Dirtyface Lookout Summit (above Lake Wenatchee), *this Sunday*

Elevation gain: ~4000 feet
Distance (one way): 3.6 miles
Highest point: 6000 feet

It was fun last year, let’s do it again! Good workout and rewarding views. Not technical, but steep snow slope. The pace will be intermediate to fast, so if you are a slow climber this may not be for you. Milkshakes and a bite to eat afterwards at the 59’er Diner. Don’t know what time we’ll be back -- Please don’t sign up if you have plans for Sunday evening.

    It looks like my presence is required at a family function. Bummer - I really wanted to get into the mountains this weekend.
