My lovely wife and I fulfilled a longstanding plan to climb this (it was the name). Limited views but play of light and fog made for some interesting atmospheres
Hiked over on the way out towards McCartney and Gladys Lake.
I did this one while heading over to McCartney Peak which ended up being a long day up and down valleys, but as always it was fun.
Made a quick stop-over on the way to McCartney Peak.
At the time this was simply a landmark on the map and a natural stopping point after the exertion of reaching the top with a 60 lb pack (lots of food). From the top I was afforded an incredible 360 view that included Low pass and Grand pass, my next 2 objectives on the Lillian ridge - Grand pass traverse. Incredible beauty in all directions and an overall "Grand" experience. Thank God for the Olympic mountains.
Summited on my way to Lake Lillian. Great 360 panorama. One of the best views in the Olympics.
This one makes for an easy and enjoyable day. If you do the full circuit down through Grand Valley, you are likely to see some Olympic black bears. Give them their space and they will give you yours.
