Hey, neat page and very timely. I'm planning on hitting Gardner and No. Gardner this summer and it looks like Abernathy could be included via the Gardner Meadows approach .
Nice page(s, both of the new ones). Enjoying the photos.
Another good page on Abernathy Peak south of Silver Star Mountain. Access is via Methow valley a rather long NW Se valley. Can be climbed with the nearly 9000' Gardner Peak.
Another excellent page as usual.
Nice page with some very useful information.
Nicely done page! What is "standard wilderness policy" in Washington, though? Are permits required? If so, where would I get them?
I guess "standard wilderness policy" can seem a bit vague. What I mean by that is the leave no trace and no motors ethic (i.e., no snowmobiles and no chainsaws).
In general, the wildernesses in WA do not require permits in the sense that they have to be reserved. A lot are just ones you fill out at the trailhead register box. Really popular other places like the Enchantments do have overnight permit limits to keep the crowds down. These permits are typically reserved many months in advance (see here). Then, of course, there is a limit to the number of permits to go up Mt. Rainier (but that's a national park).
Very nice route descriptions, where do I find the Wash. to 100 peaks list.
Try this: Top 100 list comparison.
I go by the Bulger Top 100 mainly as it has historical precedent, but Roper & Howbert's list has value too. Their list cleans up the peculiarities present in the Bulger list.
Wow, thanks for the link. More than three-quarters are 8,000 foot peaks. I'm sure they are much more difficult than the top 100 Colorado peaks, due to glaciers and such.
Nice job, as on all of your pages. The area between the upper Twisp and Methow rivers is kind of under-appreciated. Glad to see you giving it some coverage.
High quality stuff : )
I notice you're looking at a lot of my mountain pages. Are you stalking my mountains?
You wish I would stalk your mountains. : ) No, I'm looking at various pages, state by state (unless they appear on What's New). Promise not to laugh!?! I'm trying to map out the next two years of climbing in the life of jennifer barnes. : )
