Done as a 3fer with Chiwawa and Helmet Butte. Really did not enjoy the East Ridge much. Perhaps with a little more snow it would be ok, but we found a lot of sketchy loose rock. Coming down the SW face to Pass No Pass seemed like a much nicer route.

Did Fortress and Chiwawa as an overnighter. Camped in upper basin. I was near eaten alive by the flies and skeeters! Great views from the summit.

We did both Fortress and Chiwawa on day two which had amazing views of Glacier Peak and the area around.

First of many peaks over 3 days in the area. Wasn't paying attention just below the summit and hit my head on a large overhanging boulder, when my climbing partner arrived on the summit he asked why I was bleeding! Happy Birthday!

I do not remember a whole lot about the climb except there was a lot of snow being the winter before was a record snowfall year. Clouds drifted by and it was an amazing day. We had been in the Glacier Peak Wilderness for more than 10 days so this was icing on a big cake.

Snidely Whiplash

One of the most beautiful areas in the Lower 48. But I've never seen such terrible biting flies in my life. Biting flies all the way up to 1000 feet within the summit.

Needs a summit register at the summit. Read my trip report for details. Pictures hopefully posted soon. Cheers
