Mamie Peak is the large, complex mass of granite poised above the Hannegan Pass Trail head. A limited amount of excellent cragging and multipitch climbing has been developed here in recent years. Relatively easy access and spectacular scenery make for a nice alternative to the more popular climbing areas.

Depending on the snow year the season can be short. While the Ruth Creek Valley has a horrible reputation for biting black flies in mid-summer the crag seems high enough off the valley floor to avoid that issue all together.

Getting There 

From I-5 take Exit 255 and follow Highway 542 46 miles east. Shortly before the crossing of the Nooksack River take a left on Forest Service Road #32 and follow it 4 miles to road end at the Hannegan Pass Trailhead. Mamie Peak looms above.

Follow the trail for ~4 minutes until you reach a clearing with a large white boulder perched several hundred overhead. Continue through the clearing keeping careful watch for a shallow cross ditch across the trail. Immediately after the crossditch make a hard left, thrash through 20' of brush, and pop out into open forest and a dry creekbed. Follow the creekbed up to the large white boulder. Continue up another 150' then traverse left through light brush towards a 20' tall snag on the edge of forest. A faint and steep boot-path switchbacks up the hillside. Eventually traversing up and left under mossy slabs. At a gully continue up 30' then cut left again into more forest. Continue up another 5 minutes or so then traverse back right to the base of the crag. Should take about an hour with 1200' of gain.

An eight pitch line up the best rock in the center of Mamie Peak. A techy three pitch slab leads to five spectacular and exposed pitches up the center of a knob and crack riddled buttress. Sustained 5.10 face, friction and crack climbing with a couple 5.11- cruxes for good measure. Protection is generally excellent and most hard moves could be pulled through if need be.
