Beautiful trip, quite mellow. Incredible larches! Scramble is class 2 for the most part. Some annoying scree. Easiest way to get to the very summit is to keep traversing east (right) until you get to just above the notch connecting the NE ridge to the summit block. A few simple class 3 moves and you're there!

Forest fires made for interesting views on this day hike. Below the summit we followed the cairns on the ledge to a very exposed class 4 section. I believe this is the standard way up based on accounts and pictures I've seen. The first move seemed very awkward to me so we decided we weren't in the mood. We headed to the west end of the summit "fin" where there are some bivy spots. From here a cleft in the rock was visible on the south side of the fin. I decided to try it out and found it was a simple 3rd class scramble that gained the top of the fin 10-15 yards west of the summit with only moderate exposure. From here it was a walk to the highest point with huge exposure on both sides.

Great weather...the route was full of talus though. Only the last 20 feet was fun. 6 Hours RT.
Views of Goode are top notch!

This was a fun climb, a very straight foreward route, and an enjoyable talus and scree scramble. Made the ascent in 9 hours car to car.

Climbed this one on the second go round in September. The route is straightforward on the south side, only scary bit was just below the summit with a few exposed moves and were probably Class 4. Such an amazing view from the summit and camping at Wing Lake is still one of my favorite spots. I'd recommend a fall ascent to really appreciate the colors at the lake.

9.5 hours round-trip. Much easier than I expected but a nice peak all the same. Not much scrambling required to reach the summit. This is my 20th Bulger peak.

Great trip and a wonderful climb except for being stalked by a predatory mountain goat.

This is one of the most beautiful places and most fun scrambles I've ever been to, but the season was not great, very buggy. A huge buttress fell off the ridge above the Lewis Glacier moraine that sounded like a plane overhead, then more fell twice again that day. Accidently took the loop the wrong way and had to go all the way over Maple Pass, down the Heather Pass. A little extra elevation, but very pretty meadows up there.

This is another climb that I thoroughly enjoyed even though it was an less popular route on a less popular peak. The views were great, the climbing varied and not too tough. Good stuff.

It was supposed to be a 5 day Labor Day weekend with the usual partner and two friends from Arizona. Managed to sneak in during the only 24 hours of dry weather the whole weekend.

I don't know about the "permanent snowfield" that Beckey talks about though.

Nice bivy at lake and then up airy ridge on good solid rock. Lot of exposure makes this a challenge. Fantastic climb with Norman.

Mazamas climb. Camped at Wing Lake. The stretch to the top is easier than it seemed from below, and it is way fun. There are some loose rock areas, and a few spots of exposure near the summit, but really a fun ascent to do.

This was my dog's first real mountain trip. She made it 20 feet from the summit and I continued up to the top. Whimpers brought me back to the false summit after a few shots. The rock wasn't bad and there was plenty of snow. We had the upper mountain to ourselves. Heaven.

A planned 2 day trip turned into 3. Carried too much gear, climbed too slow. Didn't want to negotiate the boulder field in the dark and miss the trail so we stayed one more night.
