The highest point in the Tatoosh Range is not one of the better-known peaks like Pinnacle or Castle, but Unicorn Peak, partly hidden in the southeast part of this little Mount Rainier foothills range. The summit block of this peak--the horn of the Unicorn--is a low fifth-class rock climb on solid rock, and most scramblers will want a rope and some protection for the short pitch of climbing. The summit view is, of course, dominated by the in-your-face views of Mount Rainier to the north.
