My fifth trip up to Lake Angeles, but first time in the summer, did not disappoint. A beautiful lake view rewards this steep Olympics climb.

Unlike my typical winter foray we left the lake behind us and climbed the Klahhane Ridge Trail to an exceptional lunch spot with clear views to Mt Olympus and its glaciers.

After lunch, and with clouds moving in, we decided to descend along the Lake Angeles Trail back to the parking lot. Totaled 11.30 miles of hiking, 4485 ft of elevation, and 4h03m of moving time.

Do you think scrambling up to rocky peak is possible?
