DescriptionLundin Peak is another one of the many peaks near Snoqualmie Pass that can be climbed in a short day. It lies on the ridge halfway between higher Snoqualmie Mountain on the west and lower Red Mountain on the east. The peak is actually a series of high fin-like crags on the ridge. In ordinary terms or in out of the way places it might not even have acquired an official name. But since this is the Snoqualmie Pass area, more features have been named on the USGS map.
The mountain is a popular objective due to its short approaches. Even so, the easiest route is Class 4.
Getting ThereThere are two "standard" approaches and one shortcut approach to the peak, all from the south side. The approach taken depends on the rock route chosen. Approaches from the north (from Middle Fork Snoqualmie River valley) will be omitted here as no one would come from that direction with the sole intent of climbing Lundin.
But first, it is necessary to drive to Snoqualmie Pass. The Pass is located on I-90. It is easy to get to from the east and the west. No need to elaborate. You want to get off at the West Summit. If coming from the west, this is the first exit (Exit 52). If coming from the east you need to get off at the East Summit (Exit 53) as you cannot get off going westbound at Exit 52. For Exit 53, it will be necessary to drive the road south of the freeway (past the ski areas) until you arrive at Exit 52.
Turn north under the Exit 52 overpass and proceed as if going toward Alpental Ski Area. If you wish to climb the East Ridge, turn right into the Pacfic Crest Trail trailhead parking area about four blocks north of the overpass. If you wish to climb the West Ridge, you can also start at the PCT parking area, but the shortest approach is via Cave Ridge. The trail to Cave Ridge is accessed from the lower Alpental parking lot 1.5 miles north up the road.
