A Black Peak Do-Over / 黑峯重新爬

My friend Tim and I first met on Bandera Mountain. Then he invited to climb Black Peak back in June. But because of terrible weather, we didn’t make it up to the top. But I got my first taste of the North Cascades from that trip.

A Do-Over

So Tim and I returned to the mountain three and a half months after our initial attempt. This time I got to witness the North Cascade mountain ranges in its entirety. And it completely blew me away. But I knew I would have to go back at some point. So I could experience first hand more breathtaking views.

It was undoubtedly a trip to remember. But it wasn’t until a year later when I found out the peak ranked 17 on the Bulger List. It’s the 100 highest peaks in Washington State.
