Could only get 2 mi up the 4 mi road to TH, toured in to the saddle. Great conditions - didn't have the gusto to bag the peak this go around, but will be back to do so in summer definitely

Camp out for a weekend of car camping and easy hiking to say goodbye to summer. Summer decided to say goodbye first and so we wound up mired in a cloud all day Saturday. Some views from Winchester but not the full enchilada so we'll have to come back again. This is still one of my favorite hikes so that's OK by me.

with no real birthday party I decided to take some time to myself so I did this and Laribee to the summit all in one day solo and then back to the twin lakes to make camp.

Climbed Winchester many times. This is the one to take the visiting friends/family up. Spend the night in the hut in the winter. A lifetime of ski terrain from a summit hut. Can't be beat!

First Climb with Gimpilator. Headed up the trail around 8pm, kicked steps into some steep snow. We were rushing to catch the sunset, which we enjoyed just below the summit. The crux was a large moat with steep rock above. Once past that it was a quick ascent to the lookout. At the lookout we caught some great fading colors on the horizon and enjoyed a fullmoon night going down. Almost didn't need headlamps, as the fullmoon towering over Shuksan illuminated the night.

This was the 3rd peak I climbed this weekend out of 4 total and also the first climb with beaudaddy85. We got into some gnarly steep snow traverses and had to weasel our way through a moat. We just barely missed the sunset from the summit and had to come down in the dark. I think this might be the start of a great climbing partnership.

I went up Winchester by the trail route to check out the route on Larrabee, which I climbed the following day. I forgot how great the view if from the lookout, it was evenening when I went up so the light was soft and wonderful.

Travis talked me in to climbing the north ridge from Low Pass and although I'm glad he did, I was relatively terrified at times. Loose and steep with some bushwhacking but very worth it as an unusual approach to a popular peak.

A great day of hiking, started with Larrabee via the southwest ridge. Then we decided to give Winchester a try from the north and ascended an exciting knife edge ridge. Even had spectators from Low Pass. Some snow but a still a great day.

Looking at my topo map I thought I could see a more appropriate route for snow climbing this early in the season. It proved to be much better than the summer route. Greg and Bridgett and I were pleased and suprised to find some lawn chairs locked up in the lookout. We set them up in the snow and had our lunch overlooking 100 craggy peaks.

This was one of my first summits when I moved to washington from the east coast. Climbed with my dad after camping at twin lakes. I was only 7 or 8 so I don't remember many details except that the views were amazing....and that some Squirrels ate most of our food the night before.

One of my absolute favorite lookout hikes. Great views of Larrabee and American Border Peak as well as Goat, Shuksan, Baker and much of the wild North Cascades.
