Did this on a warm sunny day via Dickey Creek. I stopped by Big slide Lake and Lake Lenore before the scramble to the top. Still some snowy spots on the descent to Lenore. I had great views from Rainier to South Sister and of the nearby wilderness. Went on to Bull of the Woods (mountain)afterwards. Lots of wildflowers and mosquitoes. Returned under full moon to my truck and drove back to Portland.
