An almost cloudless morning with great views of Adams, Goat Rocks, Rainier, and the Mount Aix area. Lots of little peaks up here to climb, I'll definitely be back!
Easy hike. Found a good slope for practicing self arrest. I needed it the next week in Asgaard so it was good to bone up!
A Sat. in June 2000.
With Stefan Feller, Paul Klenke, and Greg Koenig. Stefan's choice of Ironstone Mountain was a good one. Despite an approach from the south, the route was nearly all forested and not avalanche-prone... except for perhaps the final 150-200' of the ascent, but we had great snow conditions that day. Great weather and great views, although windy at the top. Forest Road 1382 was plowed until its sharp left turn, although high-clearance was still needed to reach that location. Highly recommended summit, especially during snowpack... I can only imagine how hot this area gets during Summer!
