gimpilator3 P2k's in a day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2017


This was the best peak of the day and it was decent since I rode my bike pretty close to the summit and didn't have much gain on foot. Afterward I rode my bike up Huffacker and Storm King and The Rockies.

Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2012


I really enjoyed this mountain. The Davis Creek Road was in great shape up the east side, across the north side and then the spur along the west side. All good, pics of flowers turned out nice. Purcell Mountain Link

Dennis P. and I used the SW slope approach. Great views with Adams, Hood, St. Helens, and Rainier all front and center. We descended the east side and I would highly recommend the SW side for up and down.

RedwicAnother Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2011


Another lame P2K out of the way. I kept putting this peak near the bottom of my "to do" list, but due to my broken wrist I decided to do this low-effort summit the morning after my sunset summit of nearby Huffaker Mountain the previous day. My only regret is doing this Purcell Mountain ascent mostly in the morning darkness... OK, so that is not really a regret. :-P

Date Climbed: Nov 3, 2007


This was an off-trail trip with frankly few redeeming features. Except that I bagged my summit which was very satisfying after being stopped previously by the road washouts on the approach to the trail that goes up this mtn. Open views from the top

Bob BoltonPurcell Mountain Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2006

Bob Bolton

Great hike with Dean, but without the highly touted views of the volcanoes and Goat Rocks due to low-hanging clouds. Would like to return in good weather, but "so many mountains, so little time" prevails.

DeanPurcell Mtn trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2006


Bob Bolton and I were stopped by a huge log on FR 63 so we stopped and found the old trail and hiked up it for our summit of Purcell Mtn. A water crossing of Davis Creek provided the main entertainment and I had fortunately stuck sandals in to facilitate
our crossing. An interesting hike as the trail is slowly reverting to nature.
