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.
