Views were nice, but the summit is not as open as Cascade. Would definitely suggest bagging both while you're up there, its not much of a jump from one to the other. It was cold, but the trees helped with some of the wind.
My third and my wife's second high peak. A bit disappointing after hitting Cascade a few minutes earlier. My advice is do Porter first, and then Cascade. I love hillman's entry by the way. Funny stuff.
Met a woman alone on the summit. Her boyfriend bailed on cascade. What a freakin' pussy.
I climbed Cascade with my Dad; then he waited at the trail junction while I ran over and 'begged' Porter as well. A nearby thundershower made me a bit nervous but it eventually passed without even getting us wet. A rewarding and easy hike!
Fairly easy hike but a good one especially with kids. With the family and Jonathan Stanley.
Very Icey that day. great view, clear skys,perfect day
A nice alternative to the ant hill that Cascade usually turns into late in the day. We started at 10:00 and we were down at 14:00 there were 50+ parties that registed for Cascade after we signed in and 20 before us and they were still comming.
The Dacks are just getting too popular.
Anyway it was my daughter's 3rd high peak and about my 6th time up that peak.
I find the view better than Cascade.
one word - easy
