Not sure why this disappeared from the climber's log. Did this between Pinnacle and Eagle Peaks this day.
of three that day. Easy, mostly class I trip from Pinnacle Saddle. Did this one as part of three that day with Maddie. Denman was next.
It as very smoky on top
This hike was very smoky but still very worthwhile. Nice to get a new summit.
A nice Spring outing with Matt, Jacob and Chad.
Awesome day trip! Stevens Canyon Road was closed due to snow, so my friends and I parked at Narada Falls and took the 1.5ish mile trail to Reflection Lake. From there, we followed the Pinnacle Saddle Trail. Once at the saddle, we hiked to the top of Plummer, and then scrambled to the top of Pinnacle. Looking at Pinnacle Peak from the top of Plummer, I didn't think that it would be wise to try the Pinnacle scramble without ropes. We decided to do it anyway, and it wasn't nearly as bad/exposed as it looked from a distance. Lots of fun, spectacular views! We arrived at the parking lot around 9AM, and were home (near Tacoma) by 4:30PM.
10/03/14 After making quick work of Pinnacle Peak I decided I'd better bag this peak quickly while I was there. Found the infamous reflection pond up there for pictures.
warmup for Pinnacle
Combined with Lane Peak and Denman! Nice weather early on but whiteout in the afternoon. I have an album for the trip!
I saw this trail going up Plummer after coming down off of Pinnacle Peak and gave it a go.
Nice short trip from the trail and saddle to get great views of Rainier, the Tatoosh Range, and Adams and Saint Helens to the south.
Nice summit lunch spot to view the South face of Pinnacle after climbing it earlier the same morning. Good two'fer
Great day hike after finishing Unicorn the day before. The trail was partially covered by snow, but the traverse up and across the snow is still fun and easy.
This was a while ago but I remember it being really fun and easy with great views.
Beautiful summit! Combined this one with Pinnacle Peak since it seemed like the cool thing to do. :) The summit push from the Pinnacle/Plummer saddle was pretty easy. I thought the views from the summit were amazing, some of the best in the Tatoosh that I've seen so far. Great hike and not too difficult IMO.
It's impossible to describe the views atop this peak. In every direction you look the sights you behold are all breathtaking. Of all the places I have hiked to, I would have to say this had some of the best views yet. Only problem is the ease of the hike from the roadside trail head makes you feel like you haven't earned them. Oh well, I'll take it!

Took my apprentice up (age 13) for a spring climb, now he is 22 married and I make him lead all pitches on all the hard peaks since I hate exposure!
An easy walk up from Pinnacle saddle.
Good short trail from lake and scramble to summit.
It may not be as tall or technical as the other Tatoosh peaks, but it does have some of the best views. What a great tree.
