Ascent Trip Report

A quick drive-up on the way from Utah's Flat Top Mountain to Seattle. From I-90 exit 63, start measuring at start of forest road and drive NE, potholed but ok for normal clearance car. At mile 0.1 turn L at N47.30088 W121.28793 onto a smaller dirt road, better surface. At mile 2.5 turn sharp L at N47.29101 W121.27434. Still good dirt road although drainage channels need care.

At mile 5.1 turn L at N47.29144 W121.26256 and immediately R (E) to park in open area. Trail continues in direction just driven, 150m to summit. Two rocky summits a few metres apart. The farther one is the higher, with a trig mark (Lee 1998) in the rock at the highest point (N47.29345 W121.26117, 1390m).

Then the Seattle airport to meet Pete Ellis for two weeks exploring the Cascades, starting with Mount Baker the next evening.
