Description: Sardine Mountain is notable for a relentless steep approach. Many Chemeketans use it as a training hike in preparation for bigger objectives. But make no mistake, this is a worthy goal in its own right, with a degree of difficulty rivaling (or even exceeding) the likes of Diamond Peak and Mounts Bailey, Thielsen and Ellinor. The route climbs 3700 feet in 3.5 miles, with 2700 feet packed into a short 1.5 mile section. The summit ridge offers views from the Coast Range to the Cascades, including close-up views of Mount Jefferson and an uncommon perspective of Mount Washington and the Three Sisters.

The route is mostly a Class 2 walk-up, with a few short sections that may require hands. Good conditioning and tough feet are a must. The leader will reserve spots for 2019 Climb School graduates. See the route here:
