Mt Teneriffe Saddle 1.24.03

I got a really late start so I decided to do something close. I arrived at the end of the Mt. Si Road at 1:30. I took the logging road until the saddle just south of Ranchor Lake. I then left the logging round on the easy to follow trail that leads towards Teneriffe. The trail follows to ridge line and is very easy to follow due to the lack of snow. I left the snowshoes in the car today which was a good thing because I didn't hit sustained snow until 3700ft. There is hardly any snow once you leave the logging road. The weather was fairly warm low 40's on the summit. The last 300ft of climb is fairly steep and is very slippery on the descent. I reached the summit at 4:15 and only stayed a few minutes. I hurried back (mostly in the dark) and reached the car at 6:30.

Trip stats 14+ miles Total time 5 hours Total climb 4000ft
