Bill's Peak Scramble

In August I went with the Mountaineers to scramble up Bill's Peak in the Mount Stuart Region (near Cle Elum). After hiking along the trail for a few miles we did a basic rock scramble to the top of the 6197 foot peak. This climb was fairly easy compared to most of the other Mountaineer trips I've gone on. At the top we had good views of Mount Stuart and Ingalls Peak. A storm cloud was developing over the summit so we soon headed down for safety.
