osatrikThe Terrible Traverse!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 25, 1993


OSAT group, as an outing from the annual fall car camp on Mtn. Loop Highway, decided we would climb Pilchuck, and then continue east on the ridge to Lake 22.
Bathtub Lakes were nice -- so nice a couple of us stripped down to skivvies and swam. I lost a contact lens. Later, while bushwhacking down the ridge, looking for game trails and kicking steps in pine needles, I took a 20 foot tumble down a gully and twisted an ankle. We bailed on the Lake 22 idea, and came out via Pinnacle Lake

Some nice blueberries on the trail. Someone has stolen the summit logs from the lookout house. We should get a new one up there.

Hiked it yesterday with some friends. Temps were in the mid-90s in Seattle and the heat was brutal the whole way up. It was a fun, easy break from the tough climbs I've been doing lately.

Good times with friends I hadn't seen in a while, and the weather was perfect - not hot, not cold.

Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2006


A nice late afternoon climb to the Summit. The road is impassable about 2 miles from the trailhead and the snow was just above the eves on the trailhead outhouse. The trail is in good shape but the snow is getting pretty soft so make sure and take your snowshoes. Lots and lots of snow at the summit. Sorry about no photos (I forgot to bring fresh batteries)

Weather didn't allow any views, as I here you get a good shot at Three Fingers. But a great winter hike.

Good early spring or winter conditioner, when avalanche conditions are low.

Great hike with a purty little rocky basin to compliment the lookout's extended views of the surrounding mtns and sound.

Sun was out and I felt like leaving early. The chipmunk at the lookout was hungry so we shared a Cliff Bar. He likes Apricot! I had the summit all to myself.

I love this hike. I have done it twice in winter conditions and would love to check it out on a clear summer day.

Some nice pictures from November 2003

A fun day trip, been there many times. The date I posted this for was not the first, nor the last, but the most memorable. The guy I was with. The whole hike, his hair did'nt move, glued in place. Incredible! And slogging along on Snowshoes no less!

It's fun to look back through the paper log on top and see my other entries. The trail is busy this time of the year.

Even for a summer hike, there was a bit of snow. No worries there. I do with I brought my climbing/rappeling equipment, though. The summit view was fantastic and the weather was flawless!

What better a way to spend independence day? Clear weather this time. Easy grade and spectacular view. I can see why this one is popular.

Very clowdy after we reached half way up. No view on top but a few inches of snow on the ground. Well developed trail. I'm coming back again for the view.
