Summer snow  Sucess!

Great hike with a good amount of snow from about the 5000' level and up. Large cornices were still around near the lookout tower.

Great Hike  Sucess!

I've been up Granite many times in many seasons. Summer is too hot and crowded, winter requires snowshoes (ugh), spring has high avalanche danger, so my favorite time to climb is september. Less people and plenty of blueberries!

All kinds of different routes  Sucess!

This mountain can be climbed from just about any direction. A great early season conditioner, or a great late-season berry-fest. Avoid on hot summer days.

Cookies!  Sucess!

This was the second hike for my birthday weekend. Hot day, minimal snow. I met a ranger that was stationed that day named Susan. Awesome lady! She says that she normally has homemade cookies that she gives the hikers but unfortunately did not have any that day. So, when you go up, be sure to meet the ranger in case it is Susan!

Multiple times  Sucess!

This is my favorite hike close to Seattle. Much, much nicer than Mt Si with pretty heather meadows and a nice, rocky ridge one can scramble to the summit if mere walking is not enough of an adventure. This was the mountain that got me into climbing. I have ran, hiked, and skiied it many times since.

Winter solstice ascent...followed standard trail  Sucess!

Climbed on winter solstice and got great weather. Avalanche conditions were extreamly low and the snow conditions were fantastic. Despite this we still took the longer route and followed the standard way up. Great climb in the winter!

Punchy Crust  Sucess!

Punched giant holes in a snowy crust after 5,000', crawling in certain places to stay afloat. Barely made it. Great views. Today was the hottest day for November 3 in Seattle on record at 74 degrees.

USGS Summit Marker Missing!  Sucess!

Started at the trailhead at about 7:30. Got to the top in about 2 hours 20 minutes and was disappointed to find that their were 2 reference pegs fro the true summit marker but the actual one was missing with a suspicious hole in a rock located where it should have been. Some Vandal must have a nice souvenir.
Aside from that The view was excellent Hiking above the clouds for the majority of the above tree line meadow. Even noticed a female deer chomping away at some of the sub alpine foliage.
