Kaleetan Peak via Denny creek trail/Melakwa Lake, King County, WA, USA

Hike From Parking at Denny creek trail. Hike over Hemlock Pass to Melakwa Lake. From Melakwa Lake to Kaleetan Peak starts as a steep Hike past the toilet for Melakwa then turns to a class 1/2 scramble requiring route/trail finding skills. Approach skirting along the ridge dipping into down to west side of the ridge then up again. The actual scramble to the peak, class 3/4 scramble, very steep, approach shoes, helmet and climbing skills recommended. Actual elevation at Kaleetan peak is around 6200 ft.

PNWRich: Kaleetan Peak

Finally was able to scratch this off of my to do list. Honestly, it was much easier than I had expected, although we just did the south ridge route. Somewhat long but enjoyable scramble followed by an awesome swim in Lake Melakwa.
