Hiking Mount Washington

A strenuous class 3+ scramble in the Olympic National Forest.

One should have appropriate tools for the conditions, routefinding skills, and scrambling skills.

Be prepared for exposed class 3 and class 4 ridge walks on the way to the final summit, as well as lots of scree scrambling in the summer season, or avalanche prone snow otherwise.
