Top was covered in frost, lower section covered in sun. Made for a great visual - switchbacks made it easy to get up and down. Worth taking time to get to; great views from open summit.

With Flanders. Rough drive in with my rig getting scraped on both sides by the encroaching saplings. Wet hike in to the meadow. Cool views. Then switchbacks up into the frost/rime covered trees. Excellent summit views. Met a Seattle Mountaineer named Tess who hiked down with us. Fun day.

chicagoskySummit with camp at Rock Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2014


Climbed via Trail #1587 from Rt 2. Great trail - but gets quite hot in exposed sections. Camped by Rock Lake - fantastic views all night and amazing stars. Summited in the morning and then made the trudge back down. Was woken up by what sounded like artillery shells - 2 of them specifically and then on the way down, was buzzed by a fighter jet. Summary - great peak, worth the hike - amazing views from summit.

Rainy on the west side, so we came over and hiked up Rock Mountain as a consolation prize. Still no views, but at least it was dry.

Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2012


From Trail 1587 (off Hwy 2) - should've had better boot grip & poles - was foggy on top with slick/melting snow - summitting required walking up, down & across & scrambling back down snow fields with possible avalanche conditions - twas worth it to place the taunting peak on my "check off" list and say, "been there, done that"! Dang that felt good!

With the MVP. A great fall hike up from highway 2. Traction devices and or an ace ax would have been nice for the firm snow we encountered just below the ridge but we managed with poles and step kicking.

The trail was a nice hike and the views are great too. Need to come back during the snowy months and take the switchback trail straight up from the 2.

Finally made it up via Snowy Creek in the summer. Three previous summits were on snow from Highway 2. Lower section melts early and upper half is a fun snow scramble.

What a place for a winter camp at the lake below the summit. Perfect weather too! See pics and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/washington_climbing/rock_mountain/hiking_053.htm

100% pure walkup summit hike. Great views. Did this hike with Eastking (author of the peak page).

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2009


Bryan and I started at the Snowy Creek trail head at 8am. We found that a huge pile of avalanche debris had annihilated parts of the trail between 4600 and 5000 feet. We started with the summit of Rock Mountain and then worked our way over to Howard and Mastiff. We took twenty minute breaks on each summit and spent the rest of the day moving. We got back to the car at 8:30pm

Ceiling was around 4,800 feet, and had 50-100 feet of visibility the rest of the way to the top. Had no views, obviously, but it was still a great way to kill a few hours. Three easy hours up (navigation was tricky in places), less than 90 minutes down. Good times.
