This mountain can be climbed from just about any direction. A great early season conditioner, or a great late-season berry-fest. Avoid on hot summer days.

This was the second hike for my birthday weekend. Hot day, minimal snow. I met a ranger that was stationed that day named Susan. Awesome lady! She says that she normally has homemade cookies that she gives the hikers but unfortunately did not have any that day. So, when you go up, be sure to meet the ranger in case it is Susan!

This is my favorite hike close to Seattle. Much, much nicer than Mt Si with pretty heather meadows and a nice, rocky ridge one can scramble to the summit if mere walking is not enough of an adventure. This was the mountain that got me into climbing. I have ran, hiked, and skiied it many times since.

Matt LemkeWinter solstice ascent...followed standard trail  Sucess!

Climbed on winter solstice and got great weather. Avalanche conditions were extreamly low and the snow conditions were fantastic. Despite this we still took the longer route and followed the standard way up. Great climb in the winter!

Punched giant holes in a snowy crust after 5,000', crawling in certain places to stay afloat. Barely made it. Great views. Today was the hottest day for November 3 in Seattle on record at 74 degrees.

ArkitektUSGS Summit Marker Missing!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2010

Arkitekt

Started at the trailhead at about 7:30. Got to the top in about 2 hours 20 minutes and was disappointed to find that their were 2 reference pegs fro the true summit marker but the actual one was missing with a suspicious hole in a rock located where it should have been. Some Vandal must have a nice souvenir.
Aside from that The view was excellent Hiking above the clouds for the majority of the above tree line meadow. Even noticed a female deer chomping away at some of the sub alpine foliage.

Visibility was so bad I almost hit my head on the lookout tower when I got there.
I got about four extra feet of elevation due to the snow cap.

fzteNo summit but a nice hike
Date Climbed: Jan 27, 2010

Started up the trail at 6:45am with headlamps. Clear skies and plenty of stars to be seen. Didn't encounter snow until a bit below 3000'. As we got higher we watched the neighboring peaks as they were engulfed by some pretty fierce clouds. Stopped for a snack at 3800' and watched the upper slopes of Granite vanish. We could hear the wind howling and it looked like even more weather was headed our way so we decided to turn back. Most of the clouds had burned off by the time we were back on the road. It was a good hike but climbing into a whiteout just didn't sound like tons of fun.

An early afternoon hike before Hawaii trip in the heat of a hot day, but at least breezy in open areas thus no major bug problems and no crowds.
