Guye Peak

Summit: 5,168ft

4m 2,100ft gain

An imposing hunk of rock located at Snoqualmie Pass just south of Snoqaulmie Mountain. There are multiple classic routes up ranging from an easy scramble to technical rock climbing. The walk up route starts from the Alpental parking lot.

1st Trip: 10/17/18

I couldn’t wait another day to bag my 100th different peak and 50th of the year! It was a solo after work mission. I made quick work of the familiar unmaintained trail until turning off towards Guye.

Gotta love the views across the valley towards the long lineup of peaks from Denny Mountain to Chair Peak.

I chose to stop at the false summit as the true summit requires some rock climbing.

I’ll be back for the last pitch but that didn’t matter I was happy to be on my 100th different mountain!
