An exhilarating loop into the jagged and lofty Sawtooth Range visits larch groves, remote basins, windswept high ridges, and sparkling alpine lakes in the Lake Chelan–Sawtooth Wilderness, a 150,000-plus-acre wild wedge on the Methow River–Lake Chelan divide. Scramble an 8000-foot summit and behold a serrated sea of mountains before you and fjord-like Lake Chelan below you. You can easily turn this weekend outing into an all-week adventure scouting nearby summits, tarns, and basins. The Ovals are de?nitely worth a round.
