This is a great objective, either from Salmon La Sac or North Fork Teanaway.
Hit this on a mountain bike ride. Easy scramble.
Started out at De Roux campground, made our way up Hawkins in a whiteout, then descended down to Gallagher Head Lake. Day two we tagged Fortune, Ingalls, and Not Hinkhouse. Lots of rime ice high up, great to get up there before the summer crowds!
Climbed Hawkins in a total whiteout with blowing snow. Camped north of Gallagher Head Lake and went on to Fortune, Ingalls, and Not Hinkhouse the next day.
Nice area, one of the first places I trained my dog to wait for me. I still can remember his yelping for me all the way up.
west summit with Puzzlr from NWHikers
What a great peak with killer views. Pictures and trip report coming soon
In case anyone cares about this peak, we did it today without any real issues. We beat up the Boulder Creek trail and after crossing the second major drainage we beat up the ridge towards the summit ridge. Steep but fun and great views.
5 of us hiked up from the trailhead at about 3,400 feet. Only followed the trail for a few feet before heading straigh up the side of the mountain. We lucked out on weather, expected rain but actually got some sun. View of Stuart from the summit was great!
