Ascent Trip Report

An excellent way to save a rainy day in the Cascades. A short climb up in foggy conditions, then the fog broke and we were treated to some nice views. Later tried the substaintially higher and harder Tommyhoi Peak but retreated due to inclement weather. A long hike out back to the main trailhead of Y.A.B (down to 900m altitude)
