22 miles, 16 hours, Trip Report
This is a great quick getaway from Seattle. Great cluster of peaks and gives a nice alpine feel considering the peak is so low.
No 009, personal climber's log.
Climbed with Druksel Dorji, my grandmother and bill. Approached via French Cabin Creek trail, then followed obvious climber's trail up to the summit. Some off-trail meadow walking near the top
Tried for the West Peak but fell short due to trying the scramble in wet and near whiteout conditions. At least from our side it was low class 3. I will head back there soon.
Went up these peaks as well as Kachess Ridge and Hard Knox. Nice trails in the area with easy scrambles from the trails. Did a loop with all 5 peaks. See map and pictures at http://www.willhiteweb.com/washington_climbing/kachess_ridge/hard_knox/french_cabin_mountain_065.htm
