sweet report, i'll be doing this one sometime 2012 haven't decided exactly when yet but this is quite helpful.
Thanks Jow, I also enjoy reading your trip reports... Highpointing is really a great way for me to learn US since I came to this country in 2007.
I think I will hit this in winter myself. I love snowclimbs, and winter in the PNW can drag a little (though on a clear day can be total heaven). Whenever you are game for Hood and Rainier PM me.
Good info forth parking and navigation. I will be out there on jan.30th. Looking for anyon thy can join. Please let me know.
