 Grizzly Peak - East Ridge via McNasser Gulch  

Climbed Grizzly Peak via East Ridge on 25 July 2010

Time - about 3 hrs from truck to summit and 2 hours back. Derek's preceding report is dead on and pretty much covered the route and conditions, including no snow to speak of and certainly none to cross. Thumbs up to Derek for instigating this climb.

"4WD" portion of the route to the high trail head is a no scrape affair for a stock Tacoma, one section requiring some minimal skill but otherwise no real step up from the first 3+ miles of approach.

We reversed Derek's route, making for a nice ridge walk on the approach. Had a beautiful day, hence no reservations as to getting high up on the approach portion of the climb. Regardless no route finding issues on this Centennial.

For anyone interested . . . the usual Climbing with Bob narrative covers the details and has more photos.

And of course, a requisite teaser photos . . .

I did Grizzly (and Garfield) the following day. Was that you who left food on the summit cairn? It was kind of gross.

That peak really had some great views. It looks like you may have ascended the same way that Greenhouseguy descended in my report. That is probably the best (and least annoying) way. Nice write up as usual!
