This is a great climb on good rock on classic Mt. Stuart, and an fairly easy approach. Routefinding (climbing and descending) can be extremely tricky; this route is famous for overnight epics by those who get lost. Research it well, and try a web search for the many posted trip reports. Bring guidebook photocopies! You can bivy on the route, go camp to camp (recommended), or, if you are fast and have small team, (4 or fewer) you can send this route car to car in a long day. Combine this with a Ingalls Peak climb for a great Cascades granite weekend. Use the nice creek at the trailhead to cool off your post climb beverages. Forest fires are common in this area in the summer - call the USFS in Leavenworth WA before you leave town to be sure the trails are open.
