Bryant Peak and Hemlock Peak are two high points on the long ridgeline above Denny Creek. Both peaks are merely a stone’s throw away from the classic climb–The Tooth. The closeness of the two makes for an ideal day trip.

Today we continued our quest in tagging the high points from Denny Mountain to Chair Peak. Bryant Peak had an impressive sight of Kaleetan Peak and Chair Peak to the north. But Hemrock Peak had a more distinct view to the southern peaks.
From Bryant Peak, Hemlock Peak looked farther than it was. But that was until we started making our way over to it. From the basin, scrambling up to the top of Hemrock Peak took only 20 minutes. But the peak didn’t have as much sitting room.
