The largest mountain at Washington Pass. There is a commonly done glacier route that involves some 4th/low 5th scrambling to reach the summit, and other routes get done every few years or so. This is an impressive peak when viewed from the Liberty Bell group.

Getting There 

There are several approaches, but the most common approach to Burgandy Col starts at mile marker 166 on Highway 20, about 4 miles away from Washington Pass.

Climbing Season

Eventually, you will arrive at the rock that leads to the summit. Scramble up and be proud. To descend, reverse the route....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
