gimpilator12 peaks in 2 days  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2016


A solo trip which I started with Misery Ridge at Smith Rock. From there I stopped for a hike up Black Butte on my way to Crater Lake. At the lake I hiked up the 5 primary peaklets around the lake and a few minor ones before driving to Yamsay Mountain for the final hike. See the trip report.

My nephew and I climbed Watchman and Hillman in the morning on our way out after a couple of days in the Park. This was the best weather day and we were sad to leave, but had to get back to PDX.

Chilly 20 degree morning. Thankfully the sun was merciful on us as we hiked to the top. Neat morning views about 8 am.

Nice hike up to the top. Was hoping to hit Hillman Peak too, but ran out of time.

Might try to snowshoe out to the Watchman once the park opens back up...

Still snow covered, so monkeyed straight up the middle of the north slope, caught the last few feet of the trail. What a viewpoint!

SwithichFirst summit of the day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2006
Did this with my brother, and a friend named Ken a few years back. We started with The Watchman, moved over to Hillman Peak, and finished with Llao Rock. The watchman is just a walk to the top on a paved trail if I remember correctly. A nice spot for those who don't want to be scrambling and still want the view.

had a nice backpacking/snowshoe trip with my girlfriend into CLNP. Experienced a January heat wave, and scrambled up The Watchman in single layers. Spectacular views from the summit! Great winter goal.
