Seattle is the typical starting location for this program. From there, a two-to-three hour drive into the North Cascades take us to the trailhead for our chosen climb. Most programs require overnight camping in the mountains, but some of the more accessible climbs allow us to stay in hotels or camp near the climbing area.
