This was a nice summit climb, and I am very glad I took the short bushwhack route. The "SE Ridge Traverse" route only took me 3h30m to complete, roundtrip (2h up, 1h30m down), even taking a lot of photos. When I opened the summit register jar, I was very pleased to see the names of many prominent county highpointers who had also made the summit. This was my 5th WA CoHP, and my 40th CoHP overall.
