Where else can you start in a rain forest and finish on a glacier?  The mountain requires over 5000' of elevation gain by its shortest route, one of only 12 Washington County Highpoints to do so. The mountain is one of only seven "Ultra" peaks (i.e. mountains with over 5000' of prominence) in Washington. The mountain is also considered one of the 20 most technically difficult county highpoints in the lower 48 States, also known as "Apex" peaks. These aspects make the mountain only one of ten total "Triple Crown" county highpoints in the lower 48 States. "Triple Crown" county highpoints are those with at least 5000' of gain, at least 5000' of prominence, and on the "Apex" list of most technically difficult peaks.

Contact Roger Kilcoyne via email,, for more details.  We will have a wait list if needed.  You must sign up for the trip by sending me an email.   If for some reason this website allows you to sign up, even though I clicked "register with leader" you will be removed from the list.



This is an easy glaciated peak with a short 5.4 section to reach the summit.
