MAeroP3-Defiance-Bandera loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 1, 2014
Solo trail run on possibly the last snow-free day to do this this year. Got cold and bailed on Web so I could keep moving and warm up.

The traverse to Defiance is not bad at all in these snow-free conditions, even when the rock is wet.

Snow free and hot as heck comming up that south ridge. I'll come back for Web when I've got more time. Down climbed 2 spots just to play it safe.

EastKingP3 and Defiance  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2012


It was a little exposed and there were a couple Class 3 moves but it was the heat that stopped me from Web. The angle that this peak has toward the I-90 is incredible. Unfortunately I forgot the camera. We thought going to Defiance and down was a better choice than the steep exposed bootpath. Probably safer but dramatically longer.

No. 005, personal climber's log.

Probably my first "scramble," this is a really nice less-traveled option along I-90. The way is much more primitive than many nearby trails, and though i-90 is visible right below for part of the hike, it gives you that wilderness feeling.

Easy as can be to gain the summit. Bagged Web while I was up there. The ascent is much easier when it isn't covered in a fresh dump of snow.

If you can't find the register on P3, I'm afraid you either didn't look hard enough, or you weren't where you thought you were.

ArkitektCouldn't Locate Summit Register  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2010


Went up the shorter route and enjoyed the lower half of the hike. Once it got to the steep exposed rocky part it was a little less fun. I think their are about 3 times where you think you're just below the summit and you're wrong as well.

Traversed over to the high point at 5336 ft and considered going over to Web but looked at my watch and decided against it. Maybe another time. Overall nice hike at least for the view you get. I'd put it in the "trainer" category since it's pretty much entirely too steep for it's own good.

Date Climbed: Apr 22, 2010


Cold breeze above the tree line, especially on the final ridge to the summit. Snow was firm and consolidated, making for good climbing. Had to stop about 200' short of the summit to layer up before proceeding to the top.

Cascade ScramblerHairy, airy, slick and exposed  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 1, 2009

Cascade Scrambler

Climbed Defiance first, then traversed over to P3. With four to six inches of snow and a narrow, steep ridge, the traverse along the ridge is hairy at times. The traverse from the east to the west summit is fairly exposed and slick when a small amount of snow is present. If I were to climb this again, I'd either do it when the ridge is dry, or in the dead of winter.

gimpilatorP3 to Defiance Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2009


Bryan and Dane and I were thinking of Mount Washington but we decided to do something with "more meat on it's bones". We decided on the approach that it was not going to be fun to hike down such a steep loose face so we agreed to traverse over to the summit of Defiance and descend from there via the Old Defiance Trail. We found the ridge top near the summit of P3 to be very exposed so we did not attempt Web Mountain. I would think that the Web is rarely done.
