A scramble to Del Campo Peak from Gothic Basic. Class 3 or 4. Helmets, gear, and technical expertise required.

If you still have energy left after reaching Gothic Basin, search for a light boot trail up towards Del Campo Peak. The trail leads to the base of the talus. This is a great stopping point for those who prefer to hike rather than climb or scramble. The views here are great, one can see the whole basin, a birds eye of Foggy Lake and on a clear day like today all the way to Mt. Rainier.

Should you decide to tackle the summit, know that it is incredibly steep, and a fatal fall is never more than a misstep away. If you're experienced and well-equipped, your reward is breathtaking views of Seattle, Everett, Rainier, Baker, Glacier Peak and everything in between.
