Had the mountain to myself
The off-path "trail" was kinda fun up the ridge to the summit. Great views, steep drop-offs around you, and not as crowded. We enjoyed this trek.
Just to be sure, I stood on every single potential highpoint on the entire ridge. Weather was iffy at best, raining at times; the trail through an old clear cut was a bummer.
"Climbed" this with gimpilator and co. definition of a walk-up.
We had quite the peakbagging day. I was thoroughly exhausted by the time we finished this peak even though it was all trail.
Rampart Ridge, SE Rampart Ridge, Dungeon Peak, and Mount Margaret, from the Rocky Run approach.
A fine day snowshoeing.
Gorgeous way to bring in the new year, sunny and clear all day. The descent was rewarding on my splitter.
My roommate took me up this hike just after I'd moved out to Seattle from Iowa. I'd never climbed anything so high in my life. Ah, perspective (heh). We went up and over to Twin Lakes, had lunch and went back. Lovely late summer weather.
EDIT: Looking at the map, it wasn't Twin Lakes, but rather Margaret Lake.
Perfect quick hike offering up some nice vistas N to S through E. There are limited W views due to trees at the summit, but this is all compensated for on the descent through an old clear-cut area where new growth has not yet compormised the open westward vistas.
Good leg workout with good views of Stuart, Rainier and other local mountains. Another worthwhile mountain.
This is a nice hike, good for all levels of hikers. No technical difficulty, lots of views.
