HIKE 05: Iron Bear - Teanaway Ridge (Central Cascades, WA)




My brother scored tickets to hike the enchantments this September 2021 and I’m going on a bunch of hikes to get my butt in shape. Will be documenting and reviewing these hikes and talking about the gear I’m using.


Hike 05: Iron Bear - Teanaway Ridge (Central Cascades, WA)

May 23, 2021

Length: 6.5 miles round trip

Gain: 1900 ft.

Highest Point: 5489 ft


Running on 2 hours of sleep, I somehow got my butt out of bed to do this beautiful hike just east of the Cascades. The trail starts in the forest then opens up to spectacular mountain views. Tons of wildflowers line the path which proceeds through a stunning ridge line. At the top, there are plenty of rocks to lunch on. An intermediate hike, this one is highly recommended, especially on a clear day!


GEAR:


A replacement for my last jacket that did not keep me dry. Didn't get a chance to use it, but from what it feels like, it should do a much better job in the rain.


Love these jackets. I had a blue one, but too small for me right now. I FELT LIKE A SAUSAGE IN IT (ugh), so I bought a larger size.


Altitude, barometer, compass, carolrie counter, GPS, steps, heart rate, oximeter all in one watch.


Seems good so far.


Underrated must haves. Salty sweat in eyes is no fun.


Still feels great. A little bounce makes me feel like I've got Jordans on.


Great, especially for the price.
