North America, United States, Washington—Cascade Mountains, Kyes Peak, Northeast Ridge

Kyes Peak, Northeast Ridge. An extended logging road on the north fork of the Sauk River makes this new route, climbed by me on September 14, the most direct of the three approaches available. From the road end follow good trail two miles to Curry Gap, then southwest up through timber and along the open ridge to the northeast base of the peak at 6000 feet. Class 3 rock on the left edge of the glacier leads to the summit via its southeast corner. Four to five hours from the road end.
