Final climb of my first season of mountaineering, had summited several times before but always camped at Goat Flats. several tricky spots past Tin Can Gap, crampons were a must - the snow chute (the one spot an ice axe is recommended) was mostly water ice. very, very glad i brought a headlamp.

I call this peak the center piece of the mountain loop highway. Thanks Gimpilator for taking me with on this trip.

Spent the weekend up there and had the most amazing sunset! I have to say this is one of the most diverse trails I have been on. Great hike from TH to the lookout.

Started a little late, leaving the TH at 9am. Met up with another solo hiker for company. The snow crossing beyond Tin Can Gap was soft but I would not have wanted to cross without my ice axe. The other two snow crossings were easy. Clouds allowed peek-a-boo views. Exciting to lean over the 2,000 ft of exposure on the east side of the LO. Left the LO at 4pm. Ran out of daylight at Saddle Lake. The trail is nasty by headlamp!

A very fun trip on a great day to be in the mountains. I really want to come back and spend a night in the lookout sometime.

Karl HelserNorth Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2010

Wow! What a great climb. It pretty much had everything. Very hot approach to Goat Flats where we camped for the night. Lots of running water and dry tent spots. Without much beta other than the Becky guide, we (party of 5) set out to conquer the North Peak. Mostly snow from Goat Flats to Tin Can Gap. Steep snow off the gap down about 400' of elevation on to Queest Alb Glacier, then back up 1000' to the col between Middle & North Peak...although not before spending a couple of hours looking for the west face route. Becky's routes call out for class 4 scrambling to the summit...we decided to take a different route. We finally made it to the base of what appeared to be the route. I led this pitch starting out at a high 4th class to low 5th class for about 40m then had to make a decision...right or left (not knowing what I'd find either way. I chose right...after a couple of moves I found myself in the middle of the crux of the pitch. I'd say there were about 3 to 4 5.7+ moves before coming to an old piton that made me smile. There's nothing like finding a sign of past human presence to make one breath easier. After this pitch Terry lead the knife edge ridge (tons of east west exposure) to the base of the next 20 to 30 foot low fifth class pitch. After that it was an easy walk up a grassy ramp, over a few blocks to the summit. 10-hours from Goat Flats to the summit. That included a few hours of off route issues. 6-hours back to camp.

My first time up was in 1991. Came back in 1992. I've been meaning to get back ever since. Recent photos show that it is possible to get from the gap to near the summit without snow. Much different that how I remember it.

Good workout. Just under 8 hours roundtrip. Carried ice ax and crampons, used neither, but could see why some would opt to use them.

Left late and in the day and made it to the top approaching dusk. No gear so spent the long night in the hut all alone with the lights of Everett in the distant.

First tried while in High School, not having the right skills nor timing with the weather or season. Returned in 99 with my new wife on a blue sky day, in late season with lots of experience. A must do summit. Three Fingers Trip Report

Awesome trip! Great weather. I did this with the Everett Mountaineers for the lookout maintenance project. We saw a bear going up, and spent the night on the summit.

Great day, and only missed seeing the mountain's owner by one day. :-) We stayed below the normal snow traverse shown by Dean's picture, and made a short snow traverse and rock scramble below the longer snow traverse. I did it as an official Mountaineers' scramble with two fast leaders, and it took 8.5 hrs car-to-car, with one hour at the lookout. I'll definitely be back to climb this one again. Here's our route.
