particularly great page for another great mountain, A!
Perfect weather and a gorgeous view of the surrounding mountains. Highly recommended hike.
This was my first hike in the Verlot area. The day was miserable at the trailhead but after 30 switchbacks we were above the worst of it. I counted 62 in total. That's right 62 switchbacks! Pilchuck, 3Fingers, Whitehorse, Whitechuck, Sloan, and Delcampo, all had clouds around the base or coming off the summit. beautiful.
I got off work early so I called Gareth for a last-minute hike. Some people coming down said to watch out for 3 feet of snow on the summit but it turned out to be only half that much. Not a cloud in the sky. Lovely!
The OSAT Car Camp went up Dickerman. I remember laying out a dozen cameras for some poor passer-by to take all of our pictures together, once with each camera!
The snow was a bit patchy above 4500 feet but nothing gaiters couldn't handle. Good to be back on one of my favorite hikes. Spectacular views!
Steep, climb, especially for the last 1000 feet. Foggy, but big four peeked out of the clouds a few times to say hi. Wicked cornice at the summit. Crampons were a must. Glissading down was a blast.
A good trail to some great views. In the winter at about 4500 feet right off the trail, there is a nice frozen waterfall if your in the mood for some Washington ice.
We originally planned to climb Pilchuck on this day, but for some reason kept driving to Dickerman. This was a very fun hike that had views of mountains not visible from the I-90 corridor, my usual hiking location.
Second peak in two days! The blueberries are perfect and so was the weather. The surrounding crags are spectacular.
Fun hike even though the incline is relentless. It's steady, so it felt easier. The last set of switchbacks were killer, but we made it! Views of Mt Baker, Glacier Peak and so many mountain ranges. I went with Alainna, who was attacked by a giant fly at the end... wiping our her energy. Ha ha ha!
Nice alpine meadows with wildflowers and a gorgeous 360 degree view of snow topped craggy peaks. Highly recomended!
Snow past the meadows on both trips. 4,000 ft. in 4 miles is always a great challenge, especially when bringing along new hikers. Along with Mt. Pilchuck, this was my first introduction to the world of hiking in the Mt. Loop Highway area of the Cascades. The views were enough to bait me for life.
Awesome day, incredible views - especially of Big Four and Glacier Peak!
Great hike. Snowshoes not necessary, but an ice axe would have been nice. Many holes to watch out for, so be careful. It will be fun to try this one in the summer.
Beautiful views, snowshoes were hardly necessary due to dense snow conditions. Reminded me why I love the cascades so much, you could see forever.
Beautiful clear day with great views of Baker, Glacier Peak, and the surrounding peaks. Nice to get out of the fog in Seattle for a change ;-)
Snow from meadows upward.
