The End Of A Great Peakbagging Weekend! Date Climbed: Oct 2, 2011
This peak has intrigued me for some time. The appearance and prominence of it sticks out like a sore thumb from southwestern Washington and northwestern Oregon. Great trail, except for slipping a few times from the rain (or perhaps from exhaustion from the big weekend), and the low clouds ruined views.
This peak completed my big highpointing weekend that stretched west from Strawberry Mountain to Saddle Mountain. Seven CoHPs during the trip, 11 summits overall, and nearly 1350 miles RT.
"No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he’ll keep coming back and back until one of you is dead."
