Nice crux move at the tree..lots of fun. Next stop: Denman.
Bagged this on after Pinnacle.
Climbed in winter conditions with my future wife, one week before we got married. Had snow and a wind chill of -17. Ice axes useful on this day.
Same day as Pinnacle, climbed them both. Great exercise and views.
Visited with friendly family of goats on the way up. Good root holds on the ascent.
Six OSATers did the Traverse in the late spring from The Castle to Eagle, summiting them all. We camped just south of Lane Peak, which is the most enjoyable of the scrambles.
Fun climb, excellent weather. Scrambled up 30 foot gulley on way up, bypassed that on way down through rocks on the S side of ridge.
Combined with Pinnacle. Clear sunny day with great snow conditions. A walk up.
Clear day at the start, and nothing but clouds on the top.
part of range traverse
Great views. Lots of people.
Gotta be one of the best views in the park. First visit to Rainier, amazing place.
Amazing views of Rainier on a clear day. St. Helens is also visible from this vantage point. Great day trip, I highly recommend.
Trivial peak. No visibility when I was there with cp but I imagine the views is exceptional.
When, my husband and I summited Plummer Peak in September, 2001, we made a promise to attempt a summit of Mount Rainer together.
Nice bonus peak after Pinnacle.
We spent the night just below the summit of Plummer after a long day of traversing and peak bagging. We hoped to complete the Tatoosh Traverse the following day. In the morning the weather was bad, and my gear was worse. We fled down the trail, hitched to the car at Snow Lakes trailhead, and started heading home. As we got to Ashford, outside of the park, the weather cleared. Grrrrrrr.
A short hike, and though you climb the whole way, it really wasn't too tough. Great view from the top.
Slept ot the base, and scrambled up first thing in the morning. Did this as part of the Tatoosh Traverse. Easy scramble to the summit. Good spot for breakfast.
Short, easy hike - definitely not a destination peak by itself. This peak is traditionally combined with Pinnacle and Castle peaks and done as a traverse.
