Ascent Trip Report

Ascent route is better without snow. Since we had snow, the descent route worked as we could make steps in the ankle-deep snow, but may be less pleasant when dry in summer/fall. Great peak with stunning 360 views of Mt Olympus, Hurricane Ridge area, Victoria, Mt Baker, and BC Coast Range giants. We picked this one as it was a good bonus bump for our prominence-focused S Appleton peak the day before that could be done from Appleton Pass easily, has more prom than Haigs Lake Pk, and is on the Olympic Rain Forest Court List. Great use trail from Appleton Pass to Pass @5400 between Haigs Lake Pk and Pk 5900. Two bumps on top of the peak about 100 meters apart and an easy stroll away could be the highest ground - best to tag both. We didn't see a soul above Sol Duc Falls both days on this pleasant but cold November weekend. Pics
