Ascent Trip ReportFred Lobdell gives a good overview of this HP in his CoHP.org report of 2000. I will add that you can park on the edge of NW 55th St near the contours. I had a GPS which made finding the contours easy, but getting to them was a very tough bushwhack. The western one off 55th St is the easiest. The three east of the road are in thick brush, which is full of those 'klingon' seeds that stick to your clothes. I got covered. The two eastern points are best accessed from 253W. There was a section of fence down and the forest seems to have been reforested and the trees are in rows. The northeast point took 10 minutes to get to, but only half that to get back from because I found a convenient break when I was practically at the HP. Made the hike back a lot easier.
