day hike - grandview peak via big mt pass
Grandview Peak (9,410 ft) offers fantastic views of the sounding areas but is seldom climbed due to its remoteness. We will take the longest but probably easiest route to the peak from Big Mt Pass. We will be on the Great Western Trail, except for the very last part where there is no trail. The very last part (very short) involves easy class 2 scrambles. We would bag Big Mt and Swallow Rocks as well as some other ridge line peaks (or bumps) on the way. Making these small peaks would require additional 1,400 ft elevation gain. The estimated hike time is 10-12 hours. Hopefully, we will meet with the Andee's group, which will start from Killyon Canyon, at the peak. This hike will be exploratory. Please bring micro-spikes and 10Es. Please email before Friday, noon, May 24, for the meeting place and time. Registration priority will be given to WMC members.
