East Then Middle Then West Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2013
With low clouds and some light drizzle, the weather did not cooperate very well. The west peak is interesting because during the approach it has a steep cliff face, but the summit itself is like a brushy mesa. Fun trip.
Visited the two main summits of Goat. Good weather and a great hike with Bob B.. Rainier, Adams, Hood, and St. Helens, all standing out around us. Still 4 feet of snow in the sheltered areas along the ridge. Road 26 is closed between Ryan Lake and Road 99. WA P2k 67/144
Sp'er Bob Bolton and I were hoping for clearing skies so we could see the view into St. Helens crater but alas it was not to be. Still, a great hike. We came in via Road 26 from Randle since the other access roads are still blocked by snow.
