g8trtim Sept. 1, 2019 Mountaineers scramble to Kaleetan Peak via White Ledges. Denny Creek trailhead is closed this year "due to funding". Arrived at Franklin Falls parking lot at ~6 am, largely empty this early. Followed the trail to Upper Melawka lake than ascended the basin north. Then the rocks, so many rocks on approach to White Ledges. Wrapped around the ledges to the north, avoiding scree. The Ledges were the highlight for T3/T4/T5 (exposure) depending on route selection. Enjoyed the summit lunch for a while with stellar views of nearby peaks, lakes, full views of the Cascade Range. Descended the way we came skipping the "outhouse" route. The descent to the parking lot was a long slog but that's the tax you pay for a great day.
