I'm only taking alpine climbing classes right now and can go up to a 5.4 in rock climbing difficulty. What would be a good suggestion for a first and when in the year? What season.
This really Helps.

Constance is a good bushwack/slog. Never overly technical or difficult. Routefinding could be tricky. Approaching from Tunnel Creek is definitely the way to go nowadays. Go early summer when snow still covers the scree-talus. If you are comfortable on snow, you don't need a rope. Ours was dead weight.

The actual rock in the Olympics is pretty bad. Go to the Cascades to learn how to lead alpine 5th class. (Maybe the West ridge of Stuart?)
