Routh Climbed: NE ridge  Sucess!

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.

Beautiful views of Mt. Rainier  Sucess!

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!

Plummer Pinnacle Castle  Sucess!

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.

OSAT Tatoosh Traverse  Sucess!

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.

Trail to saddle, then up  Sucess!

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.
