eliotjgVery Easy  Sucess!


Fun little summit, and relatively high for the area. Great if you're with people who don't like mountaineering (my family).

Hiked to thisi peak from Obstruction Point trailhead around sunset with the mountains in the clear under increasingly overcast skies. It sprinkled rain on the drive back to Port Angeles. Beautiful summit and I would love to do more hiking in this area in the future.

A walk up. I think we ran the ridge line that day....my first time up it. I'm guessing the date. Been there many times.

Date Climbed: Nov 9, 1997


The road out there was closed but there wasn't any snow on the ground...it was a real indian summer that year. It's all we could talk about that day in blue sky bagging peaks from Hurricane Ridge to Obstruction. http://www.willhiteweb.com/olympic_mountains/obstruction_peak_road/hurricane_ridge_222.htm

Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2009


Quick up and down on my way back from Elk and Maiden on the Deer Park trail. Okay, that's not entirely true: got back from the hike, took off my pack and my boots, put on my Crocs, grabbed a cold beer out of the cooler, and THEN went up to the top of Obstruction. Super-duper views today.

Side-note: Wow, Redwic, the north side looks UUUUUGLY from the trail. You've got some stones (and clearly some motivation and skills) to mess around over that side.

RedwicOnly Take The South Side!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2009


In an attempt to perform thorough recon and analysis of this peak, I totally circled the slopes of the mountain. The loose scree surrounding the mountain, especially on the west side, was very unstable and dangerous to traverse. In my opinion, the south side is the only side worth attempting on this peak, for the casual hiker.
