Burnt Boot Peak, North Ridge. Across the middle fork of the Snoqualmie River, two miles southeast of Big Snow Mountain lies P 6480, now officially Burnt Boot Peak. Bill Bucher, Tom Oas and I climbed a new route, the north ridge. From the base of the steepest part of the ridge, three leads of class five on granite, the last being a very sharp crest, led to easier ground. Three leads of class three and four put us on the summit. Only one previous ascent of Burnt Boot Peak was listed in the tin-can register, that of the survey party of 1963.
