WOLFrisingWest 3 2 1?   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 4, 2015

Went up with Madelyn after being called off work. A little crowded for my liking, but we started late, so that was quickly fixed. A friend told me to go up West Tiger 3 to the summit, but the summit it wasn't! It was a bald outcropping covered with people and dogs (mostly cute, though)! After watching people dump gallons of water needlessly and birds being fed, we decided that it was time to find the true summit!

A slight descent from West Tiger 3, followed by a short gain, led to West Tiger 2. The summit was a microwave tower, so we weren't quite there yet. We saw a guy coming from the direction of what seemed to be the true summit and asked him where the true summit was. He asked a question back, "Which one, 1, 2, or 3?" He didn't even seem to know if he summited! The distinctions of peaks in these state parks is kind of goofy, with names giving directions and numbers before true details. Nevertheless, we found a dirt road to the top...to find a another microwave tower!

This one, though, had a view!

Great view of Seattle and the sound in one direction and the Cascades in the other!!! Well worth the fuss!

A nice easy road walk to a summit with some views towards the south. Bring your picnic lunch as there is a picnic table at the summit below the towers.

I think it was Nov. 27, oh well it doesn't matter that much. But it was a quick trip to the top, with views of trees and a tower.

Can't remember the day... might have been in October actually... within the last two weeks. I'm really fuzzy on it for some reason.

I pretty much only snowshoe this when the driving is lame enough that you don't want to go far in winter.

Curtissimoa long wet New Year's Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 1, 2009

Be very careful on top in inclement winter weather as big pieces of ice get blown off those towers from way up that are very dangerous and could quite conceivably be fatal if you were standing in the wrong place at the wrong time. After the first round I felt like a soldier in wartime right after a bomb hit.

Much more strenuous as a New Year’s snowshoe than a summer road walk.

We decided to start the new year right with a cold, wet, windy snowshoe. Good company and good attitudes kept it fun. Alexei was hit in the head by a piece of falling ice from the towers on top. Thankfully he was not seriously hurt, but we wasted no time getting off the summit after this.

Yes the summit was very foggy, but I got a consolidation prize where there were some decent that opened up. Went up on Thanksgiving to decent views. Then I went up New Years Day 2009 and while on the summit I saw Magellan get whacked on the head with ice on a foggy, cold and rainy day.

Shortly after summiting Middle Tiger Mountain, I summited East Tiger Mountain. Wonderful views from the top!!! A lot of mountain bikers were on the gravel roads. A few hikers and trail runners were going to & from the summit, as well.
