Ascent Trip ReportStarting from the parking lot at Chinook Pass, we climbed the broad, east-facing meadow up to the ridge that connects Yakima with Deadwood. Once at the top, we turned north and followed the ridge until reaching the first sizeable sub-peak which necessitated a down-climb and traverse on the east side. Once past the obstacle, we regained the ridge and continued climbing. Soon we arrived at a weather station on a second sub-peak. From here, the outline of Deadwood Peak appeared. We assessed what lay ahead. A sizeable down-climb to a small col, then a final ascent to Deadwood Peak. We carefully climbed down the wet slope to the saddle, then made the surprisingly easy climb to the summit.
