While views weren’t nearly as grandiose as those on the neighboring higher points to the north, lots solitude was to be had.
For some reason my friend and I never summited this peak despite being only a couple hundred feet shy of the top.
Second trip up the mountain, and this time we approached via the west ridge by scrambling up west slopes.
This one has been on the back burner list for quite some some, put it off due to lack of views on yet another woodsy summit.
Today turned out to be the only sunny day in the week's forecast. On the spur of the moment, pup and I got in this short climb in mid-afternoon.
With the heightened avalanche danger in the Cascades this weekend, pup and I sought out places with minimal open terrain and settled on this woodsy mountain.
