Kaleetan Peak via Denny Creek Trail 1014
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.
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.
