iquest4itBackyard Sramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2016


This is my favorite backyard class-5 scramble in the Olympia area. The view is spectacular and it has very interesting in summer rock various to the summit too. No crowds either, which might have something to do with the relentlessly steep and primitive climbers trail.

Tried it 2 years ago with no route info but lost the way someplace. This time had the standard route info loaded on my phone and made it without any problem. I'm 68 years old, had a busy summer so haven't climbed or even hiked much, but still reached the top in under 3 hours. It is steep but not as hard, or exposed, as the route info suggests.

Standard route. No snow. 1.5 hours to top. Perfect weather. Could see everything, even Seattle skyline. Saw less than 10 other people on the trail.

Very wet and white. The entire climb was done in clouds; the furthest we ever saw was one of the flanks of Mount Ellinor; near the top visibility was down to about 25'.

packratWashington's Birthday Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 22, 1958
A group of us from Bremerton, Washington climbed Mt. Washington on George Washington's Birthday on Feb 22, 1958.

It was a long time ago so I don't remember a lot about the climb but don't recall having any problems. Perhaps it was a low snow year but it has been too long ago for me to recall.

tleafYears ago  Sucess!


I've climbed Mt Washington many times. Always a good time, no matter the weather. I loved the old trails before they became 'human trails'.

Climbed twice via the standard route. Once in June 1991 in interesting snow conditions and again in August of 2002. Both times the weather was really nice.

Date Climbed: Feb 17, 2013


After summiting Ellinor two weeks ago, I wanted to take a look at Washington. Ascended to about 4500' on the standard route, but turned back due to weather and extremely hard snowpack. I'll definitely be back later this year.

2 hours, 30 minutes to the summit. Fun scrambling on the summit ridge.

Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2012


Done this one 2 times. First one I did the Ellinor to Washington traverse, but don't remember when due to the deleted page... probably around 2005-7. Just went up again via the standard route and it was intense! Crazy vertical "trail" with some good scrambling. I loved it. Great hike, but not an easy one or one for novices.

pingzingrWashington via Standard Route (Route 1)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2012


Departed trailhead at 1300 and got to the summit at 1600. Mt Ellinor has been closed since 3 July due to aggressive mountain goats. I didn't see any goats on my way up. Good route, route finding was a bit tricky, and exposure on the summit block.

RedwicI Have To Sign This Again?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2009


It was a long day, but Gimpilator and I were successful summiting both Mount Ellinor and Mount Washington... and we descended Mount Ellinor prior to Mount Washington rather than attempting the gnarly rockclimb traverse.

SIDE-NOTE: It is dumb that the original SP page was deleted without notice. Photos and TRs were lost. I will try to find mine.
