Every high point on this Washington Top 100 peakbagging list strictly adheres to the top 400-foot prominence rule.
This outing was our last backpacking trip to wrap up the climbing season.
Cashmere Mountain marked the last of my six-year-long pursuit of the 100 highest peak of Washington.
Over the last few years it had become somewhat of a tradition to do a bigger trip over Fourth of July weekend.
This trip was my last-minute plan, and it ended up being one of the season highlights.
By climbing these two peaks earlier in the season, we had the advantage of better snow coverage over the cruxes.
Due to the damage from Goode Fire, North Cascades National Park officials had closed off access to Park Creek Trail.
The 16-mile approach into Thunder Basin felt extra long when views were scarce.
This impressive massif is located just off the North Cascades Highway on the southeast end of Ross Lake.
I had underestimated the scale of the Pasayten Wilderness during our first visit three years ago.
This trip was one of the most memorable ones with several new experiences.
Photos from this trip can be found here. One month ago partner and I climbed Primus and Austera Peaks. It felt really good to get the two farthest peaks on…
Last year Kenny and I came into the area and attempted Mox Peaks.
