“Climb through evergreen forest and wildflower meadows to reach great views of Lake Cushman and the Puget Sound.”— Noah Crowe
Summer Route to Summit: Beyond the aforementioned viewpoint, the Summer Route climbs along switchbacks to the south ridge of Mt. Ellinor. It then follows along the ridge to the summit at 5,944' elevation. Please use the Summer Route during the snow-free months to prevent damaging the sensitive vegetation along the Winter Route. Always wear good boots, carry the ten essentials, and lots of water.
Winter Route to Summit: Use extra caution when climbing the chute, especially when there is moisture in the air (clouds and fog) as the rocks will become extremely slippery. Check on the avalanche conditions before beginning the climb. An ice axe, boots, and the ten essentials are necessary. Conditions can change very rapidly and the chute can be hazardous even in good weather.
