2016/9/24-26 – Castle Peak / 城堡峯

Photos from this trip can be found here. Last backpacking trip to wrap up the climbing season, which had been a great one. I got to spend more time outdoors with the pups (or at least one of them) once I finished the Bulger List first weekend in July. Yellow pup and I went into Northern Picket Range first time in…

2016/7/6 – Cashmere Mountain II / 羊絨山之二

Photos from this trip can be found here. Cashmere marked the end of my five-year long pursuit of the 100 highest peak of Washington, aka Bulger List. The difference between this list and the strict 400-foot prominence peaks list are seven peaks. That means once one completes either list, by climbing seven more peaks they will…

2016/6/25-27 – Luna Peak / 露娜峯

Photos from this trip can be found here. Pup and I slept by the trailhead to catch the early water taxi next morning to Big Beaver Campground. Hiking to the campground would have added an additional 14 miles to the trip. Trail was in great conditions, just the occasional down trees we needed to negotiate….

2016/4/30-5/1 – Colfax + Sherman Peaks / 科爾法克斯峯+雪曼峯

All photos from this trip can be found here. A generic report on climbing two of the three main sub-peaks of Mount Baker. Detailed beta and route information can be found on nwhikers.net or summitpost.org. By climbing these two peaks earlier in the season, we had the advantage of better snow coverage to get over the cruxes….

2015/9/26-29 – Goode Mountain / 古德山

Photos from this trip can be found here. Park Creek Trail had been closed off all season due to damage resulted from wildfires, south of the mountain was inaccessible by foot. I approached from the north via Bridge Creek Trailhead and took advantage of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) for a good while. I chatted with a few…

2015/9/12-14 – Mount Logan / 洛根山

Photos from this trip can be found here. Perhaps the loneliest approach on a solo climb. The 16-mile approach into Thunder Basin felt extra long when views were scarce. Two more miles later, just before it got completely dark, found a good camp half a mile north of Park Creek Pass at 6,000′. Clear night sky with…

2015/8/15-16 – Ptarmigan Peak + Dot Mountain / 雷鳥峯+圓點山

Photos from this trip can be found here. I had completely underestimated the scale of Pasayten Wilderness on our first visit to the area three years ago. At the end of that trip pups and I got just four of the six peaks on the itinerary. Ptarmigan Peak and Lost Peak were the farthest away from the other four,…

2015/7/31-8/3 – Devore Slam / 德沃雷滿貫

Photos from this trip can be found here. Devore Slam = Tupshin Peak + Devore Peak + Flora Mountain Can’t remember the last time both of us felt this exhausted from a backpacking trip. This was one of the most memorable trips with new experiences. Pup’s first ride on a seaplane, our first ride in a canoe, plus entering…
