Three Queens, Lemah, Chimney Rock, etc. - 21 Peak Salute

Trail Description

Driving Route

Driving Directions

For some time I've been brewing on a dream (nightmare?) project I call the "21-Peak Salute". It's just NE of Snoqualmie pass. Peaks include (in clockwise order) the Three Queens (one 5.5 pinnacle), the Four Brothers, Chickamin Peak, the five peaks of Lemah Mt. (one is very technical in both directions), and the big objective, a choice of several routes on Chimney Rock in the 5.3-5.7 range.

After this exploratory trip to scope the route: http://glenn.widener.us/climbs/2003/21peaks_690/index.htm, and two attempts on East Face Direct on Chimney Rock: http://glenn.widener.us/climbs/2006/chimney_690/index.htm , http://glenn.widener.us/climbs/2011/chimney_690/index.htm , I see there is a lot more exploring to do.
