Picket Range Traverse

The wild thing — remote, committing, and challenging

The Pick­et Range epit­o­mizes many things that make the North Cas­cades Nation­al Park so spe­cial and unique among the great moun­tain ranges of the world. In his intro­duc­tion in the Cas­cade Alpine Guide, Vol. 3, the leg­endary Fred Beck­ey writes: Because of the rugged ter­rain, the Pick­et Range has remained the wildest and most unex­plored region in the North Cas­cades. It is not an area for the wilder­ness novice. The length of climbs, com­bined with steep mixed ter­rain and vari­able con­di­tions, demand all around com­pe­tence and fit­ness.” Train hard and come see what it’s all about.
