Activity Notes

Join us for a weekend climb to the Southwest face of Mt Cruiser, a premier climb of the Olympics. Alpine rock, two pitches, 5.2, grade II. For safety, we'll climb the initial chimney as a roped pitch.

SKILLS REQUIRED

  • Lead belay and rappel
  • Multipitch 5.0+ alpine rock experience
  • Confident on extreme exposure
  • Fitness to travel hours with only cursory breaks
  • Optimism to motivate your partners and keep them safe

While a fun, accessible route, this climb needs grit, and is best with prior summit of a multipitch 5th class peak. Examples include Cathedral Rock, Acker, Ingalls or other qualifying routes. This prereq is in addition to any roped scrambling experience. 

Include a completed profile (example) or climb resume. Exposure: if scrambling Shuksan's summit, North Sister, Jefferson, Constance or similar was fun, you'll enjoy this approach!

SCHEDULE

We'll aim to camp overnight at Flapjack Lakes on Saturday, departing for Hoodsport on Saturday morning, and return Sunday. Bring one charcuterie item to share, for a quick picnic afterward at Flapjack Lakes. Note we're pragmatic on weather and need a clear forecast, to ensure safe return.
