breauxtrahnEast Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2005


A little too cloudy with poor visibility to traverse to the main peak, so we went for the official geo marked peak. Awesome place. I'll be back.

ArkitektEast Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2010


Started late in the day and found that views at all summits were in a thick cloud cover. From the East summit i was actually unable to see either of the other two. So I hit the East Peak and called it a day. Another time for sure. The trail is in great shape and the ascent of the SE ridge is spectacular.

RedwicSecond Time Was A Charm!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2010


Gimpilator, Bryan, and I attempted this peak at the end of September 2009. During that trip, I woke up sick and then we encountered a freak ice storm after some recent snow already packed on much of the route. Everyone turned around. This time, Gimpilator and I gave the peak a second attempt and were successful. The weather was great and the route conditions were perfect for the ascent/descent; snow-covered where we wanted and rocky where we wanted. We summited the West Summit, then the Middle Summit, and finally the East Summit. We were amazed how many people we met thought the East Summit was the true (highest) summit of Mount Daniel. The massive lake that formed from the melting of the Lynch Glacier north of the mountain is worth seeing! Great views from all of the summits, and this mountain is highly recommended. Mount Daniel brought my total number of Washington County Highpoints up to 33 (out of 39).

WeatherManSE/Hyas  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2010


Ascended the SE ridge from Peggy's, and found snow-fingers aplenty that made slow going traversing on the S flanks. Views were epic, more so than expected! Summited in around 6hrs, descended via the Hyas Creek Headwall, with long and fast glissades. Total trip time around 11hrs C2C. Awesome day in the hills.

My first attempt was October 6, 2009. Unfavorable conditions forced us to turn around then. This time Redwic and I went back and did all three of the highest summits.

Camping at Peggy's Pond was beautiful and fun, but the bugs were out in force.

Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2009


Did Daniel in a day after failing in 2 days last year. Amazing mountain and a good route, but pretty long and painful for 1 day. I registered for this site just to sign this log, so that should tell you how impressive this mountain is. 8000 footers ahoy!

mcphermaHyas Creek Glacier headwall  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2009


Just short of 12 hours car to car and the weather turned out beautiful. The hike in was a little cloudy and we did get a few raindrops. As we neared the traverse from the ridge above the headwall, the sun shone brightly and visibility improved. The mosquitos were thick, but I would do it again.

chudderUp SE ridge, down S spur  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2009


Started Friday night as the sun went down, bivied below Peggy's Pond. Climbed to the west peak via the SE ridge in the morning, then descended the S spur/ridge, traversed to the pass between Daniel and Hinman, then over to Pea Soup Lake and the gap north of the lake where we set up the tent and weathered a lively thunderstorm at sunset. In the morning, we headed by Jade Lake, No Name Lake and Marmot Lake on our way back to the TH via Deception Pass... then some breakfast down the road at a little drive through burger place in Roslyn and off to Puget Sound in search of fresh oysters.

Long day and mediocre weather (we were above the clouds but they obscured much views below). Very nice remote area though. Will have to come back here again some time to do the SE ridge!

YEMSE Ridge and Hyas
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2008


I haven’t explored Snoqualmie Pass and Daniel looked good for a quick 24 hour climb. I went up the SE Ridge because it was so late in the day. I made the summit before sunset and set up camp on top of the Lynch Glacier. No bivy sites up high, but plenty of flat snow. The route was mostly class 2 and my dog made the summit, her second this year. Great views. Too many lakes to count and no one anywhere near the mountain. On the other hand, I’ve never heard so many fighter jets in my life. It felt like I was at an air show. The Hyas Glacier provided an easier descent the next day.

Great climb with Eric N.,Bob B., and Duane G.. Hyas Headwall route. 12.5 hours car to car. Three cheers to Duane G. for completing the highpoints of all 39 Washington counties!

Finished up with pizza in Cicely, AK (Roslyn, WA).
