Peak with a view (*** difficulty) - Mount Persis

The meetup will appear full for manual control - add yourself to waiting list, and I'll pull you in depending on fit for mountain/team. If u have a 4x4, or a high clearance vehicle, and are willing to drive, then pls mention in your RSVP.

1. This is not a technical climb, but a physically demanding hike and scramble

Our t ypical hikes are around 8-10 miles round trip,[masked] feet elevation gain, and mixed terrain scramble to a peak.

Snowshoes - required
Ice Axe - required
Gaiters - required
Headlamps - required
Gloves (incl.spare) - required
Chest Harness - recommended - might be required on some events.
Winter mountaineering boots - required. This is a alpine scramble, and hence be ready for mixed terrain including snow travel.

      March 10, 2013

    • Ashwin

    One of those perfect days - amazing views of index and north cascades, a challenging scramble and fun company.

    March 8, 2013

    • Manolo

Few mins away from my home and not a big deal at all. Anyway, go to sleep everybody and nite! Have a great trip tomorrow and say hi to Mt-Persis...

  • Deanna Marie M.

    Hey guys, gonna have to say no to this one cause Val has decided on Artist Point for Saturday and I've been DYING to do that snowshoe all winter. Have fun!

    March 7, 2013

    • Ashwin

      sounds good. But, for next time, not a good practice in peaks to switch at last minute.

      March 7, 2013

  • Ashwin

    changed meeting location to avoid additional driving.

    NEW: Woodinville Park and ride.
    [masked]th Ave NE, Woodinville, WA

    March 7, 2013

  • Ashwin

    We go to Persis - it is a long one. The last 2 recent trip reports did not talk about tree wells.

    March 7, 2013

  • Ashwin

    yeah - awesome weather this Saturday! Will post destination soon -started researching now.

    March 7, 2013

  • Ashwin

    Will close event for new RSVPs - we seem to have a good team size and mix. Those on waiting list should consider other events this week.

  • Deanna Marie M.

    I might being doing Muir this Friday, sooo I'm a maybe for this hike.

    March 5, 2013

  • Ian

    I typically hike/climb solo so creating trail is not unusual.
    Born to break trail.

    March 3, 2013

  • Ashwin

    From waiting list, if anyone feels they should be able to create a trail in fresh/soft snow, pls let me know (either through meetup email or reply to this post).

    (just trying to make sure we have a right team mix for the mountain. No other intentions..)

    March 2, 2013

  • Jeremy

    You guys are awesome. And hit so many cool places. One of these weekends I'll actually be able to make it out for a good trek with you.
