Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionGuye Peak rises directly above I-90 at Snoqualmie pass and its south face is highly visible when driving east. It lies opposite the Alpental ski area, above a number of ski chalets. The south face and summit area are composed of highly fractured, crumbly rhyolite with some solid areas. There have been fatalities as a result of rockfall/breakage.
Getting ThereFor routes on the south or east side:
From Seattle: Drive east on I-90, exciting at the snoqualmie central/alpental exit, exit 52. Turn left onto rd 9041 and then right onto Erste Strasse. For the south face, park in a pullout along Erste Strasses or one of the connecting streets. Be careful to comply with posted parking signs, as there is a lot of private property in the area. From the east take the same exit and turn right onto rd 9041.
For other routes on the mountain, you can park at the Commonwealth Basin trailhead and head up the PCT into said basin.
