So Nice I Did It Twice! Date Climbed: Apr 28, 2012
Actually, in an effort to show my appreciation for Paul coming with me to Whitmore Mountain (another Washington P2K) and a couple of other peaks that day, I was willing to return to Natapoc Mountain while on the way back home just so Paul could do it for the first time. 1h35m up, 1h10m down
I wound up doing some bushwhacking on this one which may have been my fault. I think the powerline road offers the easiest travel even if it is low on the aesthetics. As I recall, there was a pretty decent bootpath of sorts once you got to the pass and headed for the summit.
I really liked this peak. I think I timed it just right, too. The road approach was almost entirely snow-free, but the entire off-road section (minus a couple of small areas on the summit ridge) was snow-covered. Easy traversing, minimal brushy spots.
Went to both summits; the south summit seemed higher, and my GPS device agreed (it showed 4220' elevation at the south summit, in contrast to the 4204' elevation of the north summit).
