Sloan Peak Winter Scramble

The 2000-2001 ski season was awful due to minimal snowfall. To make up for the lack of skiing I returned to snowshoeing. I decided to challege myself and do winter scrambles instead of just basic snowshoe trips. Winter scrambles usally have more elevation gain and are much steeper and require more use of the ice axe.

My first winter scramble was up the 5099 foot Pratt Mountain near Snoqualmie Pass. I definitely exerted myself during the hike, but felt good when I got to the top. From the summit I was able to see many of the surrounding mountains, including Granite Mountain which Jamie and I hiked up last summer.
